• Periodical ISSUES 1

    Reading is like cycling, it needs a certain balance, order and direction. The research reviews the history and future of ‘the book’ as a medium. The structures of diverse religious books, other non-linear books and new media are reflected upon to design new interpretations of the book in a periodical of multiple parts. This edition comprises different viewpoints on Mary Devotion, its connection to religion and the role of women in society. It is intended, and can evolve further, as a platform where the participant interacts and discuss social issues. My contribution to the (graphic)content is a personal research on the topic that took place in my surroundings, in tradition with the family heritage. The publication aims to enlarge the interaction of the user with the content through several design parameters. In my presentation, I will set out the used text-image relations and grid systems, which were of importance to design and shape the periodical in micro levels and macro levels, based on non-linearity and navigation. The research results in a renewed, interactive and interlinked construction of the book, in which navigation is the key element.   Video of ISSUES no.1
