THE LOST DAYS
The project aim was to create a visual book about a daily routine.
It recorded things that we see, hear, touch, smell or experience in our daily life, similar to a journal but with more depth. The look and feel had to reflect a central theme or concept that we developed though our daily observations. We needed to document the observations with text and photos to convey the concept.
I used this book design opportunity to record a friend’s addiction recovery process. The book told the story from the first person point of view, starting with the triggers of addiction to getting sober.
I used real and virtual strings to convey the thread of his thoughts. The different image treatments showed his dark period under the influence of drugs, and his life after getting clean.
