Walk Into Light

Book | Illustration | Web | Creative Coding

Walk Into Light is a lyric book design for Ian Anderson’s album Walk Into Light in 1982. I have never heard of Ian Anderson's songs before making this book, so the illustrations and typography of this lyric book are all based on the influence of my first listening to his songs. The tone of the whole book is black and white because when I first saw the name of the album, I felt that it had a strong contrast of light and shadow, which extended the basic concept of the whole book. In the lyric book, I created 11 illustrations, mostly abstract and geometric, but there are also some elements that combine real-life photos to give readers different visual ideas. In web design, I tried creative coding. Coding visually creates different feelings and levels, and I learned a lot in the process.
