Of Mice
and Men

John Steinbeck

Idea and Process

For this project, I re-read and watched the of mice and men book/scene in which the extract i choosed was from. I choose the colors based on the mood and the particular time of the scene. It was night time with fire wood and a fun little conversation between lennie and george about their hopes and dreams. Since, it was a conversation between two people , i thought that a conversation layout inspired by messaging apps would be appropriate and also fun and suitable.


For the typeface I wanted to choose a font that best suits the personality of each character.

Lennie is described as a large, strong , lumbering and a very child-like character, , having a man's body but the mind of a child. He is very innocent and sweet-natured. Lennie has a mental disability, making him dependent upon George to manage day to day life. I choose a font called "Scribble" for lennie because of his child like mind.

As, for george he is as a quick short man with defined, strong features. An understanding companion. And to Lennie’s mental disability, George has to take responsibility for him and finds this stressful and frustrating at times, due to Lennie getting into trouble. I choose a font called "Newtown" for george because it has that thick bold serious looking mood which shows that he is always in charge and im control.
