    A typographic book jacket of the prophetic 1930s novel Brave New World by Aldous Huxley.

    The monochromatic color scheme and the crack on the egg highlighted through projected text underscores the joyful tragedy in this so-called utopia that is terrifyingly similar to our world today.

    The chamfered corners and rigid starkness of Timmons NY made it an ideal choice for titles that exude an authoritative air. Publico was used for body copy for its slightly squared letterforms that echoed that of the display type.

    This project was completed for a student assignment at Washington University in St. Louis. See the full project on Behance.
