Me, Mine, Maybe Ours

spring 2021

Me, Mine, Maybe Ours is a thesis book about the importance of emotional connection and integrity through graphic design. The book contains an essay about my focus while earning my MFA at Boston University, several projects that led to this way of thinking, and several derived from it.

Me, Mine, Maybe Ours is seperated into two parts: What’s Mine and Is Yours

What’s Mine focuses on past projects and what I learned from them. Is Yours contains projects derived from a new way of thinking, one focused on empathy and shared experience. The essay in the beginning of this book illustrates where I’d like to focus in my personal projects as a designer.

Throughout the book, sections subtly change color from a dawn-like appearance to dusk. This is meant to engage the viewer and draw them into the book as an experience in itself.
