ANASTASIA BURN

Artist Designer



Kia ora, I have recently finished my Bachelors degree in Visual Communication Design with
First Class Honours at Massey University, Wellington. I am a Pākehā Artist Designer with a strong focus on typography, editorial, copywriting, dissemination and speculation, with the ability to shift my knowledge into various other medias and disciplines when needed. My work is primarily focused on ethics that are true to the moral of community, identity, the whenua and Te Tiriti o Waitangi, and I wish to work in environments that work with these foundations too.

I am currently available for freelance work.
    Please get in touch to collaborate.

TYPOLOGY: A CLASSIFICATION OF TYPEFACES

PUBLICATION

Typology: A Classification of Typefaces
is an editorial publication that celebrates the history of typefaces. It explores and breakdown’s categories, characteristics, anatomy and alternatives of typefaces and fonts. In honour of a typologist, one could call this publication the ‘Type Bible’.

Tasked with designing and putting these historic typefaces on display, I favoured a minimal and simple approach that is simultaneously engaging. The publication is an easy, referential dissection of type, invoked by a subtle ‘x-ray’ theme. Informing this idea further the stock, quality of materials, binding and colour has been chosen to reflect the silky, screened quality of an x-ray film. The publication is contained within a sleeve which one removes to ‘see beneath’ these typefaces. In developing my concept, I created a system of repetition that offered a full showcase and exploration of each classification, inside and out, for easy comparison and reference.

There are copies for sale of this publication.
