Times 1000

1. Design a (semi) automated process to fill 1000 sheets of paper

2. Think about the input, what happens during the process (the algorithm) and what the collection becomes as a result.

3. You can work by hand, use a printer or design a custom invention.

4. How does a single sheet relate to all the others?

5. Think of a good way to browse through this collection in the end.

—Fill 1000 pages o paper
—A4 or larger
—Automate the process
—Each page should be unique

Code the Complexity

Note: The steps for this project changed slightly between the printing of our book and this moment (as is the nature of technology). The project brief and files on this page are optimized versions of the classroom exercise which will not match exactly the steps published in your book.

Mass Customized Journals

1. Select nineteen poems and create a literary journal containing the resulting compilation.

2. Use no more than two typefaces and two colors. All spreads should follow an assigned grid. Include
a title and a concept for future issues of the journal.

3. Upload your design to Lulu to set it up for mass production.

3. Find a strategy to make each copy of the journal unique. Keep in mind that your concept must make each issue unique, but be efficient enough that it could conceivably be done with hundreds of publications.

4. Once you get your journal back from Lulu, customize it and share it with an audience.
