Design Rationale

The second book in a series of three, following the highly acclaimed Shack, the challenge for this volume was to create a new, revamped design, without steering too far from the original. Working within the same format, the new, bold look features handmade typography with a bright colour palette, a new set of fonts and the addition of black and white line drawings. The spine features a corrugated stock, resembling the texture of a tin shed.
