VISCOM II / How To Judge The Book By Its Cover

VISCOM II / How To Judge The Book By Its Cover
February 27, 2013 nick howland

For our next project in Viscom II, we are selecting four related sporting activities and then creating book covers or apps to abstractly depict them. For my sports I chose to select four traditional recess games: flag football, dodgeball, kickball, and four square. All of these sports are very organized (which seems to move into disorder when schoolyard kids get going with them) and also have distinct field / court layouts: Dodgeball is a two sided court layout, kickball has the diamond shaped bases, four square has (much as the title describes) four squares, and flag football has the more traditional football gridiron field. I think this may be an interesting direction to go in. An analogue recreation of the fields may be interesting.
