Behind the Scenes of Book 9

Oct 24, 2023

Every year, we go behind the scenes and look at the process behind some of the successful Typism Book submissions. 

 

This week, we share iPad process videos from Alyanna Diaz, Jacquelyn Ortiz-Nonog, and Laura Beutner.

 

What Defines & Describes Worth?

Alyanna Diaz | @aly.die.az

A personal piece from earlier this year combines Alyanna’s love for Risograph and overprinting techniques with her exploration of serif letters. Inspired by the lyrics of ‘Pure Gold’ by half•alive, the vibrant turquoise backdrop mirrors the song’s music video.

In preparation for Book 9, Alyanna adapted the piece, showcasing her creative versatility.

Seek, and You Shall Find

Jacquelyn Ortiz-Nonog | @jx_writes

This artwork was created with the purpose of becoming stickers for her loved ones.

Featuring a chosen Bible verse, it inspires seekers to actively pursue wisdom and spiritual fulfilment while placing their trust in God.

Good Things Happen When You Smile (or when you’re naked)

Laura Beutner | @laura.design

This lettering piece was inspired by a phrase that brought a smile to Laura’s face. Beginning with a playful doodle version, she later added colour and charming illustrations. In her submission for the Typism Book, Laura presents a simplified black-and-white version, directing the spotlight back to the letters, hoping to share the same joy and laughter with others.
