There may be a time in the future when we run out of resources to make paper. We will be surrounded by piles of paper in the form of newspapers, receipts, brochures, junk mail, ticket and envelopes. We would reuse and redefine a new graphic language where blank paper would be replaced by these materials which are bombarded with millions of colors, layouts, images, sizes, finishes and content. This project proposes a new graphic design approach.

Sidebars_challenge

I would like to address questions about how many times paper can be re-used, where it travels etc. One of the biggest challenges would be the lack of white space and a very high contrast in existing compositions. I would also like to address the content that is already present and how it can play a role in the new message.

This project proposes a new graphic design approach. We would reuse and redefine a new graphic language where blank paper would be replaced by these materials which are bombarded with millions of colors, layouts, images, sizes, finishes and content. Through this project I hope to heavily cut down the usage of paper.
