Book Resumé

In 2014 one of my friends became an author. She’s also a professional portrait photographer and one of my many inspirations in life, so when she asked me to help her layout the resume for her book to sell to publishers, I said yes.

I like to think that this project, though short and sweet, was a culmination of all the layout knowledge I had gained while at University. She sent the pictures she wanted me to use, and the wording, and I was asked to make it look visually appealing. Within the 48 hour turnaround she gave me, I came up with this:

I’ve redacted her personal contact information for privacy’s sake, but feel free to check out her website- it’s filled with loads of blog entries filled with helpful advice and observations.

This version is not actually the final one she took to the writers conference she was headed to, but it is the version that I was most pleased with. I don’t mind that clients have different ideas than I do about what looks good, I will always create versions to my liking and theirs, because more options is never a bad thing. Often times I find that we’ll end up combining the two concepts.
