The Big Change

So after taking a step back and re-examining the design, we came up with a way through which to navigate through all the layers of information. One of the issues we struggled with the most was how to make four disparate types of information (text, photos, drawings, infographics) work together cohesively but with enough texture and interest.
So we came up with a new navigation system: where we would use three different page sizes to differentiate – the largest page size would house the explaining/qualifying text, the smaller one would be a booklet for all the images, and throughout the book we would disperse an even smaller booklet – weave spreads throughout the whole thing. The smallest booklets would be the photos for Serendipity – finding things when you’re not looking for them.
By taking this new approach – separating the text from the images completely – we hope to create several entry points into the information – that by even a skimming glance at the book, hopefully, the reader would be able to get a more visceral sense of the information.
