Publication Design: typography, layout, illustration and production
Publication Design Siddartha by Hermann Hesse
Illustration, typographic and production layout of seminal book by the German author Hermann Hesse. This book along with Steppenwolf (27) and Narcissus and Goldmund (30) formed the basis of his opus that resulted in a Nobel Prize for Literature 1946.
The visual communication created combines sumi paintings and collage elements. Pressed leaves, sandwiched between two sheets of waxed paper perhaps reminds the reader of childhood while concurrently referencing Siddartha’s journey to enlightenment. This then can serve as an analogy to the way in which each of us gathers our experiences, remembers them and organizes them to form a life lived.

Dino Trek Animatronic Show Nashville Zoo at Grasmere
The Nashville Zoo is Tennesse’s biggest draw with almost 1,000,000 people per year. Programs developed incorporated collections and shows to enrich visitor’s experience. Balancing marketing and education goals, the media created included special event shows, field guides, like the one below, way finding, games, and advertising in both print and digital formats.
Zoo’s inspire wonder at the rich fauna of world and an opportunity to learn environmental responsibility. We learn most when we enjoy. Program materials visually reflect the wonder and the rich diversity of animal life through color, texture and the richness of illustration.
