A few years ago, a good friend of mine lost his wife Angela to cancer. The story of their journey as a couple and family was emotional and profound. Chris – a writer and speaker – decided to share that story with the world. It Is Well: Life in the Storm is the account of their life together, journey through the difficult times, and life after her passing.
It was a great pleasure to work with him on the cover and interior design. After much thought and collaboration, we decided that the best way to reflect the story of the book was to reflect the story of their lives through their Instagram posts.
My goal as a designer is to invest in my clients’ and their projects in a way that reflects their passion for their work. In this particular case, it was about honoring Angela’s life and the story that Chris wanted to tell. Even though it was one of the least “involved” projects of my career, it still is one of the most important projects I’ve had the opportunity to be a part of.
