The Condon ReportFROM THE MIND OF Dr. CONDON
The Scientific Study of Unidentified Flying Objects was performed at the University of Colorado between 1966 and 1968, with physics Professor Edward U. Condon as its scientific director. It is frequently referred to as the "Condon Report" or the "Colorado Project Report". To this day, the work carried out under Dr. Condon's direction represents the largest single scientific project ever undertaken in relation to the UFO problem.

Initially, all I was given was a massive .txt file. The goal of this project was to turn that file into a comprehensive publication by building heirarchy, functionality, and paying close attention to detail.
After evaluating the contents of the report, I concluded that the best way to create an interesting experience for the reader would be to design this book from the perspective of head researcher Edward U. Condon.
After spending months on UFO research for the U.S. government, I imagined he would slowly lose his mind. This idea is reflected in the hand-drawn diagrams, overflowing text, and stretched typography.
