Photobook Design

While coming up with a theme for the photo book I decided that some simple elements that could be repeated often was the best way to go. I think that beige is a great background colour especially with a strong accent colour like red. Coming up with the specific layout per page took a bit more time and sketching. When I sketched out what the pages should look like I found some designs that I liked very much but quickly learned I have to design my pages with the photos I want to include in those pages in mind. The different sizes and shapes caused me to redesign my individual pages a number of times. I chose a script font (Savoye LET) for my titles with a serif font (Playfair Display) for my body copy. I think serif fonts look great on print outs.
