Encyclopedia design & illustrations
This year I had the pleasure of working with Bart Welzen of Publishing House Ensie on designing a bookcover and a few pages for their crowdfunding campaign of a encyclopedia on evolution theory.
During our first meeting we discussed how their brand story could be incorporated in the design using some of the subjects as key items on a hard cover book.
With over 455 subjects with each different details that needed to be clear, keeping it consistent was perhaps the biggest challenge in design, so we decided to make an Illustration Pack, where each illustration was drawn as a single item, without shadows, so we could place and scale them on the cover design. This created a top view pack, inspired by the old vintage encyclopedia engravings from the late 19th century.
