PERFECT HURTS

BOOK DESIGN

This coffee table book was created to showcase the work of Sandra Backlund, a famous Swedish knitwear designer. Because of Backlund's bold and unique style, it was important for the layout to be just as bold while not competing with her collection.

The book is named after one the designer's less recognized collections, Perfect Hurts. This book employs a palette of black paired with neon colors to compliment the style Backlund's work. The layout has been designed on a disciplined, angular grid that prevents the content from competing with the photos of the designer’s work. Each page of this book features a unique vector pattern based off one of Backlund's designs overlaid on a photo from her collection. This adds a new level of depth to each page while showcasing two of the designer's pieces at once.
