Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder

By on


The book GO by Chipp Kid was by far the most visually pleasing book I have ever had the pleasure of encountering. The effort and thought that went into making such a delightful book is apparent. With design on the brain I looked around Cooper library to see how else design is impacting the world around us.

This image is of the call numbers on the side of a bookshelf. The design used for it is quite straightforward to match its straightforward purpose. It is used to find books, so it is used as directions, a sort of map. To mirror this purpose the design is minimalistic and easily readable. It is practical in nature.
