Travel Sickness is a singular book project from Sheffield which takes us on a surreal journey into the 21st century. Drawing inspiration from the messiness, violence and beauty of the world around them together with the writings of Stephen Jones, DED have unfurled their vision and planted something new. Innovatively, the book's design is a literal and emotional reaction to the text. The illustrations convey the fragmented thoughts of Jack as he takes an unwanted and disturbing journey into his own sense of loss. Stephen Jones's bizarre narrative describes how absurd life can be in the new millennium. He uses consumer goods, ads, themes and McPlaces as effective metaphors of the everyday. DED Ass. transfers these into graphic illustrations. The result is an experimental combination of graphics and text, full of bittersweet irony and humour. In 1991, Nik and Jon Daughtry founded DED Associates in Sheffield. DED's commitment has seen the company shoot into every corner of the creative sphere. Mainly known for their diverse works for music labels, DED's commissions reach from MTV, Hydrogene Dukebox, MasterCard, Nissan, The (Millennium) Dome and the unnamed. Stephen Jones is reputed as the musician and songwriter of his band Babybird .
