Dad’s Memory Book

26 Oct

Here is a Memory Book I made for my father’s birthday. The cover features a drawing that I made when I was about 7 years old. Evidently I thought my dad was a dog at the time…

The book is crammed with old and not-so-old photos of my dad at various stages in his life: from when he was a toddler to him holding his toddler grandchildren. My siblings all wrote a personal message for my dad, many of which recounted funny memories from our childhood. The grandchildren made beautiful pictures and hand prints for their pages.

I left a few pages blank so that the book can be added to in the future.

Architecture Portfolio

25 Feb

This side-bound book was made to showcase an architect’s portfolio. I worked in close conjunction with the architect to produce a minimalistic cover that complemented the portfolio’s subtle design.

The cross on the cover mirrors the crosshairs featured throughout the text block’s design. I also fitted two extra spacer lengths along the spine of the book. When the architect wishes to add more pages to his portfolio, he can remove the spacers, thus creating extra space for pages.
