For this project, we had to design a book around a theme. However, we were only allowed to use black plus two PMS colors.
At this time I was reading a lot about everyday foods that have been used for thousands of years because of their health benefits so I decided to explore the topic further. I created a book that explained the history and health benefits of these superfoods, and offered suggestions of how you can incorporate them into your daily diet.
A "superfood" is a food that is unprocessed or is minimally processed, so I wanted photography that also shared those qualities. I looked for photography that looked at these foods closely and intimately without any dressing or touching up.
The typography was inspired by old medical journals, so I chose to use the typeface Adobe Jenson Pro since the letterforms closely resembled those in the typefaces that they used. I paired it with ITC Legacy Sans since they share many of the same qualities.
