Objective

Design a “coffee table” style photography book aimed at an audience of photographers, art lovers, and designers. This is not a whole book, but rather a “sample setting” with a cover. The book sample should be clearly designed and informative.

Approach

The approach I took to this design was to account for all of the elements of book design, such as cover, chapter openings, text pages, endnotes, and so on. In the process, I learned how to provide readers with a clear path, guiding their eyes in a manner that is informative, yet entertaining. My job as designer is to showcase the work contained in the book in the best possible light.
