Erik Erikson Editorial Design

Editorial Design | 2016

This project uses the editorial expereince to examine curation as a design tool. After choosing an archive of film stills for inspiration, I chose to reogranize them to correspond with Erik Erikson’s Stages of Psychosocial Development. The film stills progress from images of young children, to teenagers, and to adults, showing glimpses into different stages of adulthood. A smaller booklet, containing Erikson’s theories on the common stages of growth from infancy to adulthood, lies between the pages of the filmstills. The juxtaposition of Erikson’s text with the images asks the viewer to see the recontextualized material in a new light.
