Breaking the Bad


This piece was completed as part of the ISTD 2015 under the theme of ‘Taboo’. The project was successful and I was awarded membership to the International Society of Typographic Designers. This book concentrates on the etymology of curse words. It aims to agitate the reader with the curse words present, it tries to make the reader uncomfortable. The information presented is intriguing so while attempting to create discomfort it draws the reader in. The infographics keep things interesting and break up the flow of the book. This was done to educate the reader, the individual and myself about the history of cursing, why some words should never be said and why some taboos are meant to be broken.
