As part of VCU’s (virginia Commonwealth University) Focused Inquiry class The students are able to submit a design for the following year’s Focused Inquiry (FI) Book. My design was based on conveying a clearer discription of the FI course. This course heavily relyes on critical thinking, annotation while reading, analysis, and common sence during conversations. This is why I chose to take a very raw straightforward approach to this cover design. I started with a simple type layout and annotated the layout.
