Rethinking Libraries

By ana 


For her senior thesis project, Valerie Madill reconsidered how design could make using the library more engaging and easier. She used half-wrap labels that would unify a particular subject by color as well as provide a consistent place for relevant information about each book. The result is a more sensual, desirable library experience that could draw more people to libraries and make find material more intuitive.

As library geeks, this is the kind of design and creative thinking that makes P+P giddy.
