Also I need to start getting beyond just this, to a wider range of contextual research. So, what interests me:
Typography, Print Finish, Publications.
So, I think what would be interesting would be to pick some of my favourite typefaces and do some thorough research on each. Look at a large range of interesting print finishes, how they're achieved and average costing. Finally look at some of the best publication work I've seen out there.
I think the publications requires a lot of further research before I commit to any, but I'll try and get in contact with the designers of these things when I find out who they are.
