I decided to use the photography and copy from the original design with a massive overhaul of look and feel. I wanted to convey the real topic of health and disease. These aren’t “pretty” topics – they’re dirty and edgy. This is why I chose to saturate colors and use a color palette that was necessarily easy to look at – but it’s true to the topic. And true to my design-self.
This book is completely made by hand, bound and printed. It contains about 20 spreads of rough photos and intriguing copy that relates to the content. It’s complete with a layered graph featuring the spread of several diseases.
Through the entire process I learned to work with a lot of copy, highlights, headings, templates, and a timeline. My previous photos included only a few pages – this is the entire work from front to back.
