Junior Review Essay: Accordion Book

This book was designed for Junior Review at the University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth. Students were required to write an essay describing themselves as a designer, discussing their strengths and weaknesses, and detailing their future goals. I chose to design an accordion book to present my essay so that the pages could be opened to reveal a timeline. I liked the idea that this structure reflects perspectives we may have on life itself: while we often look at events as isolated incidents, we also have the ability at any time to step back and look at our own timeline as a whole.
