About this project

YOU-AND-YOUR-RIGHTS

I have started this project in 2007 with which I have devoted my entire University degree and since then I am spending 24/24 hours working on You & Your Rights project, researching and putting everything together and solid from ideas and concepts.

Being a Graphic Designer specialized in type and print, I want to create a Unique Book that not only stay on the shelf spruce as simple piece of decoration but a document type Dictionary key to Law and Identity.

The ambition of this project is to create a Masterpiece with strong use of Typography and Unique Visual style. The book will take the audience to reflect on today´s Identity and copyright. 

This is a very unique book based on it´s first edition 1979, I have decided to redesign to make it accessible to everyone, all age and race.  A new visual reading experience to such an significant and influential book. Now in 2013 just with your help the Book can be published. Giving life, new form and contemporary language. The New edition can be now accessible to anyone and easy to understand it. Inspiring, creative and communicative, a Book made specially for You.

16 Pages of 750p.

Why You & Your Rights?

I spent all my life trying to understand Identity, what identity is and the relation with the human rights. I have realized that this is a very complex concept. I had many question, starting from:

What is identity and what are the principles of Identity?

Why is identity so important?

How do we know the rights of our Identity?

How are Identities formed?

Then I have started looking at many different ways in which Identity can be categorized.

With You and Your Rights - the Book

- I want to provide a clear definition of Law of Identity.

- The Book is a social structure in terms of Gender, Class and Nation which provide Law information with strong Typography, Illustration and use of Signs to make the language and the message easy, fun and accessible to everyone of all ages, culture or race.

The Designer

Carlos Simpson Graphic Designer currently living in London. Interested in exploring new environments and cultures and finding ways to engage with my surroundings, using typography and print as a primer tool believing in Design that conveys a clear message that the public can relate to. Ideas are worthless if you can’t make them happen. Many of us believe that great ideas inevitably lead to success. Nothing could be further from the truth. Whether it is the perfect solution for an everyday problem or a bold new concept for a creative masterpiece, you must transform vision into reality for an idea to have value.
