Solo_ is designed to be a bi-annual publication containing stories of solitude and the sea. The idea for this publication came about during my time of solitude in France. I realised that being alone is something we all fear as humans, but there is something very calming and emotional about solitariness, just like the sea. Watching the waves of the sea moves you to examine your thoughts more deeply and profoundly in a way that being alone does. I used this assignment as a means to understand grids and layouts and try designing a book around the same concept. For now, this remains to be a pastiche publication concept for which I used placeholder text, my own images and collected images. I hope that someday I can print this with real people's stories.
