Something I had a challenge with last year when designing a fun riddle book for kids 8-12, was that I wasn't sure what to do with the riddles themselves. I felt the left justified mrs eaves typography was too boring. After some helpful feedback from peers and my professor, I decided to do more research on expressive typography. I eventually decided to take inspiration from dada typography and layout because it was designed outside the box. Words were sprawled loose and free across the page changing in size, color, weight, height, width, and rotation. However, when keeping in mind that children would be reading the book, I needed to tone down it just a little so that my riddles could still be readable.
