Polyrhytmic Layers: A Typographic Orchestration
Create a conference based on any topic of our choosing. However, this topic had to tie back to graphic design in some way. We had to create a book, schedule book, poster, mailer, and badge.
This conference is constructed around the concept of polyrhythmic time signatures in music. A polyrhythm is a rhythm that makes use of two or more different rhythms simultaneously. In graphic design, grid system are used to create structure and consistency. Using this method of multiple time signatures for music, I wondered that would work with graphic design, creating controlled chaos using multiple grid systems.
