Third Culture

book design | an svamfad project

Creative Direction: Warren Lehrer

The term 'Third Culture' refers to the experience of moving between cultures before having the opportunity to fully develop one's personal and cultural identity. The first culture refers to the culture of the country from which the individual originated, the second culture refers to the culture in which the individual currently resides, and the third culture refers to the amalgamation of these two cultures. 

This is a story. A series of stories. A series of windows into memories and musings of individuals dealing with the experience of Third Culture, and can be read in any order. Names and locations are left anonymous, not unlike the experience one has traveling through worlds and thoughts as cultural nomads. 

Fractured experiences, incomplete identities, different yet strangely similar insecurities, fears, triumphs, bound yet unbound, having no cultural identity becomes one of its own.
