The opportunity to pick an unorthodox topic was really appealing to me. The focus of my project was rattlesnake venom and its effects on the human body. I chose Verlag as the main typeface because its letterforms are reminiscent of fangs. Because this is a project about venom and not snakes, I didn't want to over-populate the piece with snake illustrations. So I just suggested the idea of a snake by the sharp divisions of space and the scale-like textures. The initial hand-made type was based off of Molle. The research was a very exciting and challenging aspect to the project.
For the book, I didn't want to re-use the same layout so I broke up the composition to optimize it for a book format.
