Legibility, Visibility in Typographic Deconstruction

Along with my dissertation an editorial piece had to produced alongside relating to the chosen topic of your dissertation. I decided to study typography looking into the style of deconstruction and how designers can give a piece or text/type and more visual effect to the reader, trying to make them become a more active participant in the text. I researched into certain designers from the early 1900’s to the present day, such designers as Filippo Marinetti, Wolfgang Weingart, David Carson etc.
With my dissertation looking through the years of deconstruction, I felt the best way to represent this was through a time line style, which brought me to design this 3000x210mm publication, which folded using a concertina. Each chapter of the dissertation has been designed to relating to the chosen designer, taking there style and reproducing it in my own style, showing the development of deconstruction from start to end.
