Book Design

  • Oliver Nash

Design and layout for a book on Lifestyle.

A book destined to be a black and white trade paperback limits the design process, but there's still room to create a style and infuse some creativity.
The book is predominantly text. The design has a relatively simple heading hierarchy, and running headers let the reader know which chapter they are reading.
Charts were formatted to take up the full text width to allow easier readability in a small paperback.
Diagrams were interspersed through some sections of the text. These are made full width to make them clearer in what is usually a low resolution print format.
