The Boba Book
BRANDING, GRAPHIC DESIGN, TYPOGRAPHY
BRIEF / PROMPT
Design a long format 50+ page book of a topic of your choice. Design a typographic system, use InDesign tools to efficiently create and organize the file for a multi-page long format book print file, and combine image and text using layouts to express the content. Create a system for image captions. Choose an appropriate booklet size depending on your topic of choice. Make the overall design of the book cohesive and systematic. Use a grid system, master pages, and various other tools in InDesign to efficiently design all the pages.
The goal of the project was to create a visually engaging and informative guide that would educate readers on the history, culture, and various types of boba tea. I began by researching the history of boba tea and its different variations, as well as gathering a wealth of imagery that would help bring the book to life. I created a layout that would be easy to read, with a clear hierarchy of information and plenty of white space to guide the reader's eye horizontally through each page.
The design of the book is heavily influenced by the aesthetic of Boba Tea culture, with a color palette inspired by the colors of the various teas and toppings. I also included graphical elements to add a playful and fun element to the design.
The final result is a book that is not only informative but also visually appealing, making it an enjoyable read for anyone interested in learning more about boba tea and its culture and history.
The Boba Book utilizes InDesign grids, guidelines, master/parent pages, and character styles to ensure proper and consistent alignment and styling throughout whole book. Rarely any text goes above the main horizontal line (purple), which creates white space in the top half of the layouts, which helps guide the reader horizontally through each spread. The text only goes below this line if pushed down by images.
