This publication highlights the life and work of Ruth Ansel. Much of time in the project was spent understanding the work of another designer enough to use it as inspiration, instead of a template. There needed to be a balance between the designer's work and the design of the publication.

The colour was influenced by the American pop art movement as well as Ansel's work. In her work she uses a lot of bright

colors. Although many different colors are used in this piece it still holds its balance, and each one serves a function of either highlight, balance, or decoration. 

The structure of the work was influenced by Ansel’s work as well. Unconventional structures and pushing boundaries was her signature move, so respecting that was important to me.
