A design board for "Love is Deaf & Blind", a short story by Jonathan Safran Foer originally published in the New Yorker magazine. a reimagination of the story of Adam & Eve.


"Adam and Eve lived together happily for a few days. Being blind, Adam never had to see the oblong splotchy birthmark across Eve's cheek, or her rotated incisor, or the gnawed remnants of her fingernails. And, being deaf, Eve never had to hear how weakly narcissistic Adam was, how selectively impervious to reason and unwonderfully childlike. It was good."

The design challenge was to create a tactile design style with the word prompt "Fable". i used the paper craft approach for practical (and economic!) reasons, and composited the photographed assets in Adobe photoshop.
