Year 2020 is thought to be a year of magical realism, during which the sense of design has been re-considered and the ways of living, studying, dwelling and watching have been re-defined. It is such a special senior year. The outline of the figure in the cover is a mirror image of “2020” in digital form, where virtuality and reality coexist.
Based on the special environment of 2020, all the students’ works of the graduation season of Beijing Institute of Fashion Technology are exhibited online. Based on the intertwined experience of virtual and reality, we used mirrors as the visual language of the portfolio. One shaped mirror from each college is represented on the cover with a special process. In total, over 800 pieces of work from over 500 students, one page for each student. We created a kind of grid for each college, and the final typography was added by the students themselves, which we collected and organized, and then completed the book design.
