Process Notes

The nature of this nonfiction work is lovingly researched and personally documented. Because the client preferred sans serif fonts on the whole, I chose Raleway for headings and Lato for body text, to evoke a professional yet playful feeling without being too stuffy or rigid.

For the visual look, I utilized scraps of crinkled and torn paper to capture the subject of collage central to the book. I’ve used them to set off headings and subheadings, with the addition of a teal or pink-orange bar, and as backing for the over 60 interior photographs, to give the sense of multiple layers.
