Some Proper Advice is a book which I have written and designed. This is my final year project for my undergraduate degree of Graphic and Media Design at the London College of Communication (UAL). 

This book is for those who will be going to London with the sole purpose of studying. This book is riddled with “proper” advice and lessons which may or may not provide you with a sense of guidance.

I am a sarcastic designer who loves satirical comedy as I feel it is one of the most prominent ways of creating a lasting impact. Therefore, the mildly offensive tone of voice used in this book does not mean to harm any individual’s feelings, living or dead. If you are someone who get’s offended easily, then I would recommend that you stay away from this book. For those who can take a bit of humour at the expense of themselves, please keep an eye out for when this hits the stores. 

Proper is a word which can be used as an intensifier, or emphasis, or meaning 'completely' / 'thoroughly' / 'totally' to describe something. Probably used only in London and parts of the South East of England. 

In other words, a very english word you will learn once you go to London.

Process

A final project for university which was created during a the pandemic. The biggest problem was completing this project with a broken computer, with no repair shop or service open. It called for a severe planning session and time management skills. I was not able to print this book professionally like I had originally planned; the closest I got to was creating mock ups which are displayed below. Hopefully I am able to print this book and construct it, like I had planned, in the near future.

The Final Book (for now)
