A wonderful bespoke travel company, Brown & Hudson, commissioned me to design and craft albums for a client travelling to Ecuador and The Galapagos Islands for a trip of a lifetime.
The brief was very detailed – 3 albums with similar artwork but personalised to each individual, were to contain pages for a diary and events on a daily basis in phases of the trip, pages to record the different species seen, pages for photos and notes and species reference pages so the children could identify each species they saw on their trip.
It was a complex brief but I was happy to oblige.
The front artwork took the form of one of my canvas covered albums, the interior was lined with hard wearing black book cloth. The design reflected the trip and included elements personal to each family member.
The rear artwork continued the theme from the front, shown here with Brown and Hudson’s logo…
The internal pages were pre-printed with details of each phase of the trip.
There was lots of space to keep a diary and notes about the highlights of each day.
Printed species sheets for each of the 4 phases are laminated to protect the printed pages from being affected by the humidity – a small but serious detail to consider.
An index at the back to aid easy reference when reviewing the album.
… and somewhere to store the photos.
These really were amazing albums to work on and brought together many elements from different aspects of my work – a real self indulgence you could say!
Brown and Hudson were delighted with the albums too, which was a huge bonus!
