Special Projects


Intellectual Collaborations

2011
This group of work is a result of a collaboration via Skype with Space Paste Press, a friend and former co-worker. Now living in different states, we wanted to find ourselves a creative project where we would be challenged without sacrificing creativity. At the start of each month, we set ourselves a short timeline and a few parameters so that we could experiment with book design and content. Each collaborative project is outlined, conceived, and produced in the span of three weeks. A new topic and structure is created each month.
