Age and Opportunity asked us to document an earlier project; Get Vocal, which supported local community initiatives for older people.The brief required the production of an eye-catching, and age appropriate, but not ageist publication, that could not incorporate photographs of any participants or contributors.

We opted to use a visual cliché in a fresh form; appropriating speech bubbles as the best element of abstract software-generated mosaics, that responded to the themes and tones of each of the publication’s essays. Type is a mixture of Apex Serif, Apex New, and Apex Rounded.
