Miles Davis Wikipedia Book
Typography / Editorial Design
This typesetting design for the Wikipedia article on Miles Davis aimed to marry the turbulance and spontaneity of the musician’s career and personal life with the discipline intrinsic to his music. I paired a rigid grid system in the body with more expressive headers and pull quotes to inject chaos and mischief into the text. The lawlessness of the text accelerates in tandem with the events in the musician’s life, culminating in quotes that cannot be contained on the page and exist only as gestures of expression.
