My assignment for this project was to create a exhibition catalog for the Cooper Hewitt museum. I wanted to create something both functional and aesthetically interesting, therefore I (naturally) chose to focus on the toilet. I created an exhibition that features different styles of toilets, a timeline and examples of toilets in pop culture and art.
I referenced comics and cartoon shows as inspiration for this catalog, pulling a bright color palette as well as cartoon elements such as a typeface reminiscent of comic books, speech bubbles, and an exaggerated blueprint pattern. I paired these elements with a simple sans-serif to balance the visual design. I also chose to add illustrations into the catalog to break up the amount of toilet photography shown.
