The Designer's Guide x Sketch Book
Tasked to an Explanation Brief, the topic of "Copyright For Graphic Designers" was given. I was asked to communicate by translation the complex terms of copyright laws into easy and digestible forms to designers but how was one supposed to go about doing it? Copyright laws are very important and it is something which every single designer should have ample knowledge of in order to protect themselves. However, these books are often extremely text heavy and designers are generally visual people and are turned off by chunks of continuous texts.
In order to educate designers alike, the idea was to feed them with copyright laws WHILST they were in the process of creating ideas. And where or what are ideas usually created on? Papers in notepads and sketchbooks! The final outcome is a guide x sketch book with useful facts and information printed on the flipside of the pages. This is to allow the user to sketch on the rector (R) page whilst they are able to read up on copyright on the verso (L) pages.
To discreetly label the book instead of splashing huge serif texts which screams "Copyright Laws" on the cover, a logo was designed in a form of a safety pin fused with a pencil. The concept behind it is that copyright is similar to a pin. If you fail to learn and educate yourself with the right information, you will be harmed by your own negligence someday. However if you are able to educate yourself correctly and adequately, it will be a useful tool which helps you and prevents issues from arising in time to come.
