Some jobs are just special, and this was one of them. We were lucky enough to work with Terence Edward Martin, an 80-year-old scientist, to bring to life a series of poems from across his 80 years, turning them into a beautifully illustrated book. The poem book, ‘Thoughts and Memories in a Life’ is available digitally and as a paperback from Amazon, with all profits going to Greenpeace.
These poems are a diverse collection, creating a journey through his life, and so we carefully crafted elegant line illustrations to express the themes and meanings of individual poems. We created the layout and design to be accessible and understandable, as well as reflect themes that are personal to the author, that in turn may reflect in the reader’s own lives.
It was a lovely piece to work on, and very much a team effort!
