One Day is a portrait of a randomly chosen date in America. Gene Weingarten’s writing reveals the beauty and complexity of the ordinary. As a commonplace object itself, as well as the basis of the author’s research, newspaper felt like an appropriate fit. I wanted the design to express the notion of time and events combining and overlapping into a single spiral. The typography reflects the newspaper design of the day. The copy on the inside of the spiral is taken directly from various sections of the day’s paper. The design was worked sculpturally with minimal digital use to feel authentic and tangible.
