The Ashoka Trust for Research in Ecology and the Environment (ATREE) completed 20 years of its existence. To highlight their research done for the last two decades, a book was compiled with a lot of illustrations and images. I worked on the design and layout of the book and coordinated with all the illustrators. Here’s what resulted from a four months long assignment.
As an editorial designer, its not always that one comes across exciting projects. But when that project comes along, invariably there is holiday I would have planned half a year ago and it overlaps the deadline or some other commitment comes in at the same time. There are so many times I have looked back at such projects and wondered if I would have done a better job if I had more time. And most times the answer is yes. But there was one project which I did my best. I had an amazing illustrator to work with and an excellent editor as my team mate. And this was a brochure for the Ecological Sciences department of Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, India. The team and the content was the best I could as for (in a long time) and that made my life easier. The design that came out of the whole team speaks for it.
