Melanomaly was my submission for admission into the International Society for Typographic Designers.  My goal was to use borrowed copy to create a coffee-table-style book concerned with skin cancer in black people that encourages tactile exploration. Using solely typography, my book simultaneously tells two narratives: a scientific factual narrative and a personal anecdotal narrative. After months of typographic research, I created a mockup of my book. It was accepted by ISTD and I am now permitted to use the post-nomial MISTD as recognition for admission. 

Below: I spliced copy from scientific research findings (bottom portion) and a personal testimony of cancer survival (top portion) to create an impactful message.

Below: I identified three research directions for my concept.

Below: For each concept, I developed a small specific moodboard with key words to guide my research.

Below: Pictured are a few sketches of page layouts (left), photography exploration  developed a small specific moodboard with key words to guide my research.
