Borderline is a seasonally themed series of essays written by Brittany Chaffee. She described the concept behind “The Borderline” to me as the point where memory and the present moment overlap. Over the course of many conversations, we were able to further identify her writing as being about progression. The progression of Memory, Time, Change, and Wonder. A progression that becomes more apparent with the passing of the seasons. My job was to capture this.
I branded the series with a custom typeface and developed an illustrative system to tie the multiple underlying themes together as a recognizable package. The interior typesetting and artwork serve as an ode to the prose that floods the pages.
Throughout this process, Brittany was involved every step of the way. We worked closely with Wise Ink Publishing to set the stage for what was an incredibly successful partnership and book release.
