Project Description

CAUSe for Innovation

This book was designed to showcase the research initiatives happening in the College of Architecture & Urban Studies (CAUS) at Virginia Tech. The cover of the book was die cut, blind embossed, and had a Moleskine-like elastic band to provide a more textural look and feel.

The design of this book was created at FourDesign—a faculty-led, student-run design agency, where I served as a Faculty Advisor and a Creative Director/Assistant Creative Director for several years.
