When i was looking up examples of table of contents for my project i came across this one and it caught my eye. i liked the use of white space the designer used in the layout. i also enjoyed how the  designer used photos with similar color schemes and matched the fonts to the photos. i liked how the used their hierarchy. putting the page numbers on the photos and then having the titles in a musty red color.

When looking through the specimen books that all my classmates did, Eliza Greenberg’s book especially caught my eye. I loved the cover of the book! i thought she did a great job laying out all the pages and incorporating many unique geometric shapes. i also enjoyed the colors she used in the book. my favorite page would have to be the page where she used a more abstract feel. i liked how she made it look like the cover.

 

 

 

Hierarchy Rhythm

i personally really like this poster. i feel it does a great job emphasizing the most important information compared to the least important information. i especially love the background they use. at first it seems busy but when you start looking at the details they are very clear. i like how they have the festival locations at the top lined up next to each other and then have the bands and groups that will be playing  listed below it.
