Lovely text-based work. It’d be great to randomly run into this!!
As Nicole puts it:
This piece was an experiment in context, engagement and language. Uh, actually, what I mean is: I wanted people to see these phrases in interesting contexts and engage on an emotional level with the words I had chosen. This piece was also about my grandmother dying.
Materials: xerox, colored paper, thumbtacks, paper coffee cups, xerox transfer, manilla envelopes, cellophane bags, staples.
Nicole was also commissioned by GOOD to design a neighbourhood flag — great idea, right?!
Gorgeous work all-around. She’s also designing materials for Open Engagement 2011!!!
Spend some time checking out all her work — book design, typography, you know, making stuff and doing things. Very specific aesthetic choices, but fun reference for our (imaginary) future publications.
