XYLEM is a
zine of poetry collection. The contents are contributed by 4 different artists from 4 different majors in Maryland Institute College of Art. My design goal of this zine is to explore the expressive side of typography and use it to serve the emotional and pictorial content. By shaping the paragraph, highlighting the contrast, flowing from different typeface flexibly and creating dimensionality by layering, Xylem provides an unusual experience of reading poetry. 3D images making are inspired by the artists' unique personal writing style.
