Project Description

'Shift: Processes' is the sixth edition to an ongoing publication series founded by the OCAD U Student Press. This edition is a set of three books containing finished and unfinished works and variations on themes. The intent with this issue was to show process. These books are containers of exceptional work collected from students of each program in our attempt to blend the boundaries between the departments of art, design, and liberal studies.

The first book in this series represents process at its core illustrating the rawness of learning and imagining. The second looks at the depth of an idea, observing how far a thread can be followed, and documents a snapshot of work and research in its formative moments. The third book encapsulates works that have been finished. These pieces are lineages of ideas have culminated in that body of work to date, and work to follow. There are three books; we have ordered them in this way for ease. However, they can and should be read in any order.

Process is made visible at every opportunity of editorial design; from the hand pressed stamps on the covers, to the playful titling of each book, which delineates the content types by the stages of a process; as well as the hand-sewn elastic bands that hold the books together.

Production Lesson(s)

Directing such extensive publication is extremely challenging and requires a lot of planning and organization skills. We have over 30 artists and designers contributing with content, which made our editors work very extensive. Luckily, we had an amazing team of keeners who wanted to bring this project to life. In terms of production, we placed a lot of emphasis on adding finishing touches done by our team in-house. This was an attempt to stretch our budget and have the best possible product as a result. We have to say that while work done by hand is fulfilling, it is also extremely time consuming. When you are setting out to achieve something like this, make an estimate of how long it takes and double that time to be safe. ”
