ISTD: SILENCE IS GOLDEN
- Designer Natalie Houston
Celebrating silent cinema through the use of typography was the main objective of this ISTD brief.
I focused on the style of German Expressionism and the techniques within Mise en scène which is used to create a visual experience and set the scene for an audience.
The design explores the spirit of German Expressionism through the themes of contrast using paper and printing techniques. I captured the period of silent cinema through font choice and hand generated typography.
As the reader progresses through publication, homage is paid to the experience of watching a silent movie through the use of title cards and film countdowns.
