Banned Books

Banned Books

Digital Publisher, Open Road Media, is constantly growing their catalog of books and authors and wanted to create a microsite for the books in their catalog that were banned in some form or another.


We created a “banned book visual timeline” that allowed all of the book covers to be viewed in conjunction with each other, possibly including a visual of flames for those books that were actually burned. The microsite visual design was needed quickly in order to get the site up in time for the 30th anniversary of ‘banned books week.’

Based upon the brief we were provided, we wanted to create a site that utilized earth colors, paper textures and bold typography while remaining a simple visualization of the banned book covers.
