Making Ideas Visible


Book design


Spring 2017


This is a rainbow-themed magazine. The purpose is to use artistic pictures and typography to explain a scientific topic. The whole book consists of three chapters:

01. What is a rainbow?
02. Dispersion of light by prisms.
03. Rainbow art.



According to The American Heritage Dictionary, a rainbow is "An arc of special colors... that appears in the sky opposite the sun as a result of the refractive dispersion of sunlight in drops of rain or mist." To represent the sky, the main color of the whole book is blue. I used heavy lines behind each title word to improve the hierarchy. The style of the whole book is in the modern aesthetic to attract people to read the magazine.
