Back to Basics is a two-part project consisting of a twenty-four-page digital inkjet print booklet and 24 print letters. Both pieces celebrate opting out of social media norms (specifically Snapchat) and physically documenting digital media into print.

In Back to Basics, the designer uses Snapchat to document moments in her life, but does not make these “snaps,” or video posts, live. Instead, the designer poetically records the reasons behind wanting to post each snap, and these reasons become the booklet. Each letter offers a description of the actual “snap”, or video post, that would have been posted, and is addressed to the desired recipient.
