Design Rationale

This book is an unabashed pun on ‘Eat, Pray, Love’ and I used this idea to create a typographic, photo-realistic title out of dog items.

The internal brief was to create a contemporary, accessible and ‘cool’ design for the millennial pet owner. To break up the information heavy content, I created a clear hierarchy of text styles to make the information easily digestible, injecting a bit of fun with colour, illustrations, and photos wherever possible.

One of the limitations of this project was that the design had to be co-editionable meaning the text all must be a percentage of black.
