A Song of
Smoke and Pixels

Firm: Texas State University MFA Program | Client: Experimental Book Class | Designer: Trey Terrell

The Task

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 Solution

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.
