i really like that you like what i like
This project was based on an article by Nathan Heller titles ‘I Really Like That You Like What I Like’. The aim was to bring awareness to the differences between how the web functioned in its earlier years and what it has developed into recently. This was done by creating two books in one, each with very contrasting styles. The left book represents the online world of the past. That sense of anonymity is created using fragmented typography and by illustrating the difficulties associated with surfing the web in the past, such as slow loading or pixelated imagery and garish colours. The book on the right depicts a mental overload of colour, text and imagery, similar to life online today. There is so much going on that it becomes hard to focus on a single thing or to know what deserves your full attention. The books work together and should be read simultaneously.
