Firm: Texas State University MFA Program | Client: Experimental Book Class | Designer: Trey Terrell
While taking the Experimental Book class in graduate school I focused on projects that I might not have the opportunity to explore in my daily work – really trying to push the limits of what a “book” is.
With this project I asked the question: why spend time on something when there are faster and easier ways to do it?
The answer to this question came in the form of an essay discussing why I am drawn to making barbecue and how it relates to my day job. It would take the form of a hand-made leather knife roll, with the essay printed on two thin sheets of suede fastened to the inside.
This project earned a Best in Show award at the 2016 MFA Showcase.
