Yunus Ak explores and expands the form of the book through typography

MA Communication Design student Yunus Ak’s current work is driven “by my own personal memory” he tells It’s Nice That. “It’s structured consciously or unconsciously from everywhere I travel and see, everything I read and taste.”

As a result the designer’s projects contain a plethora of interests, anecdotes and design styles. However typography is a constant element, which attracts his attention most. Currently working on his final thesis on the “format of the book,” Yunuk’s project 16×12 plays with composition and layouts outside of the typical grids of a graphic design portfolio.

The project is an amalgamation of what looks like calling cards with various sayings and quotes related to the design industry such as, “unpaid internship,” “how to think like a great graphic designer,” or a suggestion of a never ending e-mail thread in, “re: re: re: re:”.

As Yunus completes his masters at ESAD Matasinhos, Portugal, we look forward to seeing the results of exploring and manipulating the form of a book in full.
