Poster Design

Intellectual or guilty?


The bibliographic poster is inspired by an article that discussed how people curated their rooms to display their books in their zoom call backgrounds to give a more intellectual impression of themselves.

While reflecting on this human behavior, I categorized my favorite books (that I have read recently again or for the first time) into "intellectual" and "guilty" reads.

The poster is designed such that the intellectual books take prominence when being viewed normally in the bright orange color. However, when the gaze is "filtered" by viewing the poster through a blue film, the previously hidden guilty reads come to the foreground. Thus, the process of viewing the poster critically reflects back to the human nature of having different public and private identities and interests.
