Book Design

Design for a historical tribute book for a medical clinic—covering a hundred years, and how it all started with the history, vision and work of a single doctor [ for Tanner Clinic ].

To complement the historic aspects of the book, I included a subtle antiqued edging throughout. For the typographic features, I chose soft, understated colors which are consistent with a historic feeling, but which also add a little bit of contrast on the pages that either have no images, or where the images are very old and not in color.

One of the challenges of working on this type of book, is the various types of imagery—newspaper clippings, office collateral, notes, stories, and photos which vary in condition and quality. They all need to be arranged chronologically, and arranged in a way that looks professional—not like an amateurish scrapbook. Challenge accepted.

    I’m a daughter of Dr. Cutler. Is there a way I can get a copy of this book? It looks amazing!

    Hi Debbie! So sorry for the long delay in responding–work has been so busy I haven’t had time to even think about logging into my own web site (that’s good and bad!)

    My client contact no longer works at Tanner Clinic, but I’ll be happy to email her and see if she knows who you might contact to see about getting a copy of the book. I’m sending you a direct email as well.
