Slant: The Videogame Issue
Slant is an eight page supplement that accompanies a typical broadsheet newspaper.
The brief required me to choose a topic of interest and design the supplement accordingly. I chose to design my supplement around the topic of videogames.
Videogames have always been criticised for numerous reasons but I wanted to illustrate the joy of videogames and what they mean to so many people. I printed one double page spread on plain stock then printed another double page on transparent paper. This gave the illusion of 'levels' and added depth to the supplement. This fed into my ambition to highlight the immersive nature of videogames.
Thanks to the Boards.ie members who provided their thoughts on the videogame issue.
