Family History Book

A 220-page family history book, with over 120 photos and 3 detailed family trees. In order to visually connect the three family branches, I chose an earth tone colour palette and a common grid. I worked very closely with my client, and after several months of intense work, she couldn't have been more pleased! Having written, researched and compiled all of the historical material over several years, she was excited to see her dream finally come to life. This was definitely one of the most fulfilling projects for me.

My job included:

  • Selecting and pairing fonts, laying out text, typesetting

  • Editing all photos, including extensive photo editing for older and damaged photos

  • Choosing the colour scheme and applying it across the entire book, including cover and family trees

  • Creating three family trees

  • Designing the cover
