"This project aims to visualize Taipei-based blogger My Bitchy Personal Opinions’ web fiction, He, She and Him, making it into a limited edition zine during Taiwan Designer’s Week, 2016. In doing so, they hope to send out the message that whatever the vessel is, the core spirit of creating art will always remain the same. Also, through this experiment, it is hoped to present to the readers a brand new experience when reading a text that’s been displayed on a totally different medium.
The story is told in three different perspectives, unfolding itself from a take-out coffee from a convenience store. This zine will be sold in limited edition during Taiwan Designer’s Week. Personally, the designer feels the need to make the zine more like a “designed product,” so he has decided to put three different sheets of paper in three different colors (Black, the color of Latte, and the color of Milk) respectively into three different transparent jars. They kind of betoken the personalities of the story’s three protagonists. Though different kinds of paper have been used, the story they “carry” is actually the same! The sale of the story/jars will also roughly quantify the general preference of the consumers/readers."
