Hardie Grant Books —
An inspiring creative journal for an illustrator
We were commissioned by Hardie Grant Books to design 365 Days of Art, an inspiring creative journal by illustrator Lorna Scobie. The book features an activity for every day of the year, from simple line drawings, colouring in and painting to hand-lettering and beautiful watercolour illustrations.
The book cover featured spot varnishing on the illustrated splashes of paint and black page edges.
Design and illustration for a delicious plant-based recipe book
We were commissioned by Hardie Grant Books to design a Vegan cookbook for the talented food writer Jessica Prescott.
Jessica is renowned for her playful photography and illustrated type. As the book had to be set up for co-edition, her type could not be recreated. Therefore, to reflect Jessica’s unique style, we hand-illustrated ingredients which were then incorporated into the chapter openers and recipes.
Author and photographer: Jessica Prescott
Design for a stylish henna and temporary tattoo book
We were commissioned by Hardie Grant Books to design the book for renowned henna artist, Pavan Ahluwalia.
The book was aimed at teens to early thirties and featured 30 step-by-step projects ranging from large statement pieces to smaller, discreet patterns for arms, wrists, and fingers.
We designed and illustrated it to have a playful cut and paste like feel, incorporating textured paint and paper effects throughout.
A mix of colour and black and white photography was used alongside a pastel colour palette to give it more of a grown up feel.
