Hard Soft

EDITORIAL, FOOD STYLING, ART DIRECTION
A publication that mixes two interests: baking and Doom Towns. To create imagery, I encased historic photos inside Jell-O molds.

Two pieces run side-by-side: an excerpt from Manhood and Political Culture in the Cold War (on being “hard” or “soft” in terms of wartime masculinity and Cold War political views) + The Cursed History of Jell-O and the Family Behind the Gelatin (on the history of Jell-O and its role in expectations of womanhood through history).

PRINTED ON CREAM 24LB PAPER WITH COLORED INK; PERFECT BOUND.
10.25 x 14.5 INCHES.

Tell Me I’m Fat

EDITORIAL
A publication featuring the full transcript from the This American Life podcast episode 539 titled “Tell Me I’m Fat,” in which host Ira Glass explores fat through interviews with Lindy West, Elna Baker, and Roxane Gay. 

The book utilizes wide-set typography, thin margins, and tight leading to make the design feel dense, bold, heavy, and a little uncomfortable for the reader. Images are from Leonard Nimoy’s “The Full Body Project,” in addition to photographs of West, Baker, and Gay to supplement the transcript in this printed form.
PRINTED ON TAN 24LB PAPER WITH BLACK INK; STAPLED SADDLE-STITCH.
5 x 7 INCHES.
