RUBIK'S CUBE BOOK
0

Hello there,
I've been working on a project for school. I've taken the Rubiks Cube and the History of the project and created alittle booklet. I would really appreciate any advice or constructive criticism.
I've enclosed a PDF of the book.

thanks!!

I think you could try using only the Rotis family for your book, it has something to do with Math too. The text which is now inside the ‘I’ in the cover looks like in a “refugee” place, you can consider a tiny line of text under the square compostion; regarding this, as I can see you did for the ‘C’, the same thing needs to be applied on “B, S’ because of their round shapes, so it is enough you move the ‘E’ to the left a little bit. I like the cube apostrophe. The opening page also needs work, maybe you want “By Mary Bellis” to be on the right, for sure your book should start on page 3, the one you or the software called page 4 on your spread.

I was thinking of applying this book to the product and packaging.
I would redesign the existing packaging and, this booklet (alot smaller, maybe alittle larger then the actual cube) would be like an insert. I would have to edit the text alittle and maybe include some world records that i found online. Maybe even have a page where the customer would enter the time that they attempted to solve the cube.

This would give a purpose for the book.

Thanks alot for all your comments.

A page where the customer would enter the cube solving time would lead your book toward those publications called "Activity Book", so it is a good design idea. You can also check my handout on "Games & Learning" :

Alessandro’s Cub doesn’t look puzzled at all.

If we are typophile, you should use the right accents for the hungarian word:
Bűvös Kocka
(i hope you will see them right)

Nice job anyway

a bishop who lived in Turkey during the fourth century.
Please say hello to Dániel if you meet him !

love this project of yours. I would love to see those combinations that just get under your skin.like when everything's matched up except for one peice.. also kinda cool to see it in mid-turn. can the typography find a way to be 3dimensional, a little enigmatic? peeled? (homage the cheaters). maybe throw in overtly 'geeky' typefaces.

waay cool. cheers!

Thanks!!!
Concentrating on also the packaging and including this booklet ( in a smaller size). It will utimately contain a brie history, world records and a page for the consumer to write and keep track of their attempts.

Thanks for all the suggestions. I appreciate it.
