Synopsis

While the book cover may seems too simple and too obvious a statement at first glance, the arrangement of type, the ordering of space and hierarchy suggest a thoughtful design approach that places emphasis on each individual story path experience, right from cover to their profile pages within.

Portraiture frames, expressed as tactile emboss effect and die-cut, are consistently employed in each of the profile story paths, thereby acting as a conceptual thread linking the different stages of their life.
