ADN 415 Visualizing Narrative

Professor Tania Allen

InDesign and Photoshop

Spring 2016

Turiya is the story of a young woman trapped in a world robbed of language as we know it. The project parameters were to create a story where language and traditional typography are completely alien. We were tasked with writing the story, creating the typeface and compiling/producing the work in a physical book. Turiya is heavily influenced by my love of science fiction and Oneirology (study of sleep and dreams). I endeavored to create a short narrative where readers would feel some form of familiarity yet discomfort that would constantly nag at them. This project challenged me to think outside the box and encouraged me to pursue writing more intricate stories in my other works.
