made you think - magazine spread

a double page spread made for a one-off magazine entitled 'made you think' i chose to make a typographical piece using a quote once made by designer 'milton glaser' to 'steven heller':

'every generation has to make it's own discoveries, even if they are old discoveries'

taken from the 1994 publication 'looking closer, critical writings on graphic design'

i found this quote very liberating as a designer when i first read it and decided to
apply that principle to the way i made this design, i would do it differently for example,
if i were to start again, which i do not intend to do...

the whole thing was made by hand using thousands of steel pins and one
continuous piece of 100 meter long kite string, one side is negative using
white type and the other side is positive using black wool, it took ages to
make and i decided to show the whole process, so there are lots of images
to see here, at the end is one of the sketch ideas i had using a pun on
the title of the magazine, but later rejected...

i will also upload some images of the final magazine when it is published in early may...
