    This photozine was an academic project for a class of photography applied to design, at ESAD Matosinhos. We had to create a narrative using photography, and then lay it out in a coherent format. The story I chose to tell was the excerpt of Simon Reynolds’ Retromania that you can read on the green page.

    The narrative parts from the identification of massive entertainment with chewing gum; something you consume repetitively and which loses its flavor soon. From there came out the story of a girl chewing bubblegum that goes through different emotional stages.

    I chose Aneirin for the resemblance of its serifs to bubble gum, and then Avara to antagonise the round shapes of the bubbles. Every typographic element is stretched or justified in order to convey the idea of padding content.
