Burn-out
︎ book design + print production

Dr. Eric Boydens treats patients with a burn-out in his serene orchard in the countryside. Together with a colleague, he decided to write a book that would aid other doctors with their guidance of patients during the recovery process.

I was challenged to transform the raw material they had into a real book, which could also be used as reference during training sessions. Therefore, easy navigation of the contents was of prime importance.
We analysed the material together so that the result would cater to Eric’s needs. My inclination was that the design should turn pure information into didactic material.

My headstart was a schematic layout with prominent navigation at the top of each page, with one key colour per chapter corresponding to each stage of the treatment.

To create harmony, the graphics followed the same principle, and I made sure these images consisted of simple geometric forms.
