dc.description.abstractDesigning and preparing the jacket for NIU Press’ Roosevelt Confronts Hitler proved to be very interesting, involving discussion with and approval from 2 editors, the press director and the senior designer. At the outset the project was defined as purely typographical, requiring that the visuals remain somewhat ambiguous or non-specific. The reasoning here was that the book’s content focused on the socio-economic reasons that brought the U.S. into World War II, and viewed the morality, personality and other more traditionally glorified factors to be purely secondary. As the work progressed, the use of strong complimentary colors, contrasting type weights and basic symbols became the three primary tools used to represent the confrontation. The final solution attempts to put fairly equal visual emphasis on both ‘sides’ of the conflict, paralleling the author’s own attempt to view the incidents in a more objective, less self-righteous way.en_US
