− Reader design
Reader design of the first episode of Downton Abbey. The strong division between upstairs (The Family) and downstairs (the servants) is strongly present in the series. I chose to set all the conversations which were held upstairs at the top of the page and al the conversations downstairs at the bottom of the page. The next difference between upstairs and downstairs is shown in the choice of type. All the people from upstairs got the very chic serif Olympian, the people from downstairs were set in the neutral, inconspicuous Helvetica. The binding is divided by four parts, two are sewn with a copper thread (chic-Upstairs), the two others are sewn with a black thread (neutral-downstairs).
