Frontier: A Graphic Design Education Reader is a publication dedicated to the future of graphic design education. It was produced from content submitted to the AIGA Design Educators Conference held in Bozeman, Montana in 2016.
As editor and designer of the reader, our challenge was taking a diverse set of content—essays, syllabi, workshops, photo documentation—and making it feel cohesive and reflective of its future-looking theme. Our design language was inspired by the landscape and printed ephemera of the American Frontier. Essays and longer form content were given a generous page size to make for easy reading; while syllabi and workshop materials were designed on a smaller page size to make them accessible and actionable.
