There are many theories on how the dollar sign adapted to be what it is today. It was thought to be from the Spanish “piece of eight” and the 8 or infinity sign but it was actually adapted from the  abbreviation for peso “ps” through many years of trade. So I took some old Spanish fronts and tried to mess around with those. I then decided to go with an old English font To make it more elaborate.

My final process book is finished. I’m really happy with the way it turned out. It expresses who I am and what I want to achieve very clearly. I love that my style is consistent all the way through.

My final Process book is made. I’m really happy with the way it turned out. It is very Bailey in every way; it put all of my design elements into my process book and it all is very unified.

I created a mock up of the photo book to see how it would look. I’ve never done a mock up before so they look a little wonky, but for now i’m okay with them. I created the cover in the swiss style that I had originally decided on doing, and i’m really happy with it.

I concluded I needed to tell the models what to wear even if it’s not what they’re used to. By telling them what to do and giving them direction I found that to be way more effective than letting them choose. I also fixed my lighting issues. I was very happy with how these photos came out.

After I discovered my love for the line work I had done I wanted to make the text interesting. Cindy gave me the “Think Wrong” book and it opened up a whole new world. I stared researching styles and fell in love with the swiss movement. I really enjoyed the use of helvetica in unconventional ways, and thats what I chose to use in my book.

Update

I decided to take a step back from photos and focus on my designs for the book. It started out as a joke when I drew the middle finger line drawing, then I realized I really liked how it looked as a design element do I decided to take it further and use it in my book. I made my whole design layout off of these illustrations.
