Join The–Dots


In response to the International Society for Typographic Designer’s (ISTD) ‘Taboo’ brief, I have created a book that explores the subject of taboo hand gestures around the world. Several widely established offensive gestures are covered along with others that are less notorious among modern society.

Through my research, I have found out that there is so much more to hand gestures, and realised the importance of understanding each of their implications individually. As the saying goes “Actions speak louder than words”, each action made by a specific hand gesture has a particular history tied to it. Most times they are culturally inclined.
