Project Title:
Fungus in Massachusetts
Project Description:
Starting with research and an on-site study of museums’ branding systems, I ended up drawing mushrooms, which was totally a sparkle that flashed in a moment (and I caught that). I started my research into mushrooms by finding the most common mushrooms in Massachusetts. In the end, I selected 9 types, which are not necessarily the top 9 most common ones considering edibility and appearance. The next step was to collect some details about these 9 mushrooms. The project aims to give people useful information about each type of mushroom and help them identify these mushrooms in the future. So I included mycological characteristics with an example of a mushroom to explain the scientific names.

Layout and design are a whole other story. My goal for myself in this project is to play with typography. This is why I decided to design a typeface for each mushroom, adapting characteristics and special features from the appearance of the mushroom.
