The Female Lead

I worked on this book during my time at et al design consultants in Oxford, along with Prof. Phil Cleaver and Jennifer Penny. 
This book aims to improve teenage girls self worth by showing them inspirational women and their stories. The book will be given free to schools around the UK and is founded by Edwina Dunn. The book contains portraits of women along with their interview. Each woman outlines in her interview an object which is important to her. This object has been beautifully illustrated by Amber Cooper-Davies. Photography by Brigitte Lacombe.
To attract the younger generation we decided to go with a two column magazine style design, along with pull quotes. The photography really pops and introduces the women on the first page of their story.
