Darwin's Cookbook by Altalamatox Darwin's Cookbook by Altalamatox
I never remember to post my classwork here.

I graduate in three weeks with my BFA in graphic design, still hesitantly hopeful that I'll never have to work in graphic design. Not that there's anything wrong with graphic design, I'm just relative shite at it. As I've been ceaselessly reminded by professors for the last four years, I rescue my designs with my illustrations. And as I've ceaselessly reminded them in turn, I wouldn't have it any other way.

This was an odd assignment. We had to insert some fallacy into history then pass it off as legit. I like Darwin, who liked eating exotic animals. He could absolutely have penned and published a cookbook on the preparation of penguins and pangolins, but he didn't, so I claimed he did. Ultimately, the pieces I designed revolved around an advertising campaign for a lecture series by the author of a book about this fictitious cookbook. Three posters, two mailers, a ticket, a pamphlet, and also the cover, dust jacket, and opening dozen pages of Dr. Megan Thessup's Darwin's Cookbook, whose name was one of many lie-related easter eggs (dr. "makin' this up").

These were the poster trio and mailers.

This is awesome!
Makes me think of Marie Curie's cookbooks, which are still too radioactive to touch.

This is basically the ending of "The Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists!/Band of Misfits"

I've worked as a graphic designer for the past several years, and I think your design is WONDERFUL. The illustrations carry it for sure, but the layout and typography are lovely too. Anyway, I can assure you that being a professional illustrator will be way more fun, so keep at it!
