I wrote and designed this book, which was published by Princeton Architectural Press in 2012. William Drenttel wrote the foreword and Ellen Lupton contributed 10 illustrations. The book has been reviewed by Fast Company, Core77, Communication Arts, Design Observer, HOW Magazine, and Polis, amongst other media outlets.
My primary goal in designing this book was to bring transparency to the process of working with community groups or on projects that have complex social aspects to them. With that in mind, I designed the cover to reflect the most important details from the book: the community-engagement strategies.
The book includes 20 case studies from graphic designers around the country and various entry points for readers to learn about aspects of each project.
