Lead Image

Roomates, co-workers and friends Joe Anstett and Randall Bruder take a Feltron-esque approach to documenting their lives for a week in this self-promotional book digitally printed by blurb.com. The duo originally chose a lower quality paper to stay in budget, but the lighter stock ultimately gave a lo-fi feel that complimented the tongue-in-cheek nature of their info-graphics.

Project Description

Joe Anstett and Randall Bruder are roommates at 7409 2nd Ave, Apartment B2 in Detroit, Michigan. They have the same classes, work at the same place, and hang out with the same group of friends. Sometimes together, and sometimes on their own. The proximity of their lives was interesting to them, so they decided to collect data by recording everything about their life for one week. They then used their apartment as a visual tool to display the data and results they found.

Production Lesson(s)

We decided to get the "economy" printing option from Blurb, meaning the quality of the print wouldn't be as high, but the book became affordable for us to order multiple copies to give out. But, as it turned out, the cheaper printing and uncoated stock gave the book an additional lo-fi look and tactile feel that we were quite pleased with.”
