Project: When Form Follows Function
"When Form Follows Function" (WFFF) is a magazine about the typography that follows us in all the subway stations and trains around the world.
WFFF was made as a school project where the task was to make a magazine about aesthetics versus functionality. In a similar fashion to subway lines, each article has been given its own unique color, coloring the entire article, pictures and all. As well as individual colors, each article uses its own unique typeface, all handpicked from various subway systems around the world. Not unlike navigating a subway, the text is placed in unexpected positions, making the reader reorient themselves by each spread. The form of the cover follows the function of the title, making it no bigger than it has to be.
The magazine consists of 168 pages, was self-printed on a risograph in 5 colors, and bound with an open back by hand.
