Booklet, poster and a website by Swedish graphic designer Therese Ottem for Susan Cain’s TED Talk Quiet – The Power of Introverts. The talk brings up the problems that appear in a culture that considers the triats of an extrovert to be the ideal that everyone has to conform to.
The primary colors together with the pastels represents the need for both the loud and the quiet. The intention behind the photography and choice of typefaces was to create a slight nostalgic feeling, a feeling of a time when extroversion wasn’t considered as such a desirable trait.
