Design and Introduction: Journal of Writing Analytics, v.2


My cover design for JWA v.2 is live. As I write in the volume’s introduction, the feel here juxtaposes the emergent complexity of the analytics discourse with flat and minimal sensibilities in vogue at the time of this writing. This dialectic reflects a range of relationships with information, scale, and insight to which the volume responds.

I’m also happy to join the editorial board as designer. Many thanks to Norbert Elliot for the invitation to contribute.
