Paradise is the marriage between a book, poster, and typeface all based on the idea of multiplicity. We started with Chimamanda Ngozi Adiche’s TEDTalk, The Danger of a Single Story, and contended with its message that a single story flattens one’s experience. The idea of multiplicity is reflected in my designed typeface, Funstraw Variable, and I explored the dynamics of type styling in the poster jacket. The book contents were curated with the help of my friends, and all have to do with platforming subversive voices.
