There are several different writing genres included in this book, which suggests a design challenge to keep the look and feel unified throughout. Our solution in this case was to use a single beautiful font family, taking advantage of its elegant bold, titling, and inline styles.

The manuscript for this book needed extra work before it was ready to publish. Kato Design and Photo stepped in early, creating a brilliant team to bring this book from assorted Word files and hand-written notes to completion in book form. Our work included one round of major structural editing and a second round of copy editing before we could finalize the design. We then put the designed layouts through three rounds of proof-reading to further ensure we eliminated errors.

Design considerations were demanding because the text included side-bar information that wasn’t part of the narrative structure, but needed to be included to provide context and additional information. The side-bars ranged in length from a half-dozen words to multiple pages. The solution was to create a distinctive graphic outline treatment to highlight the difference between the main story and the additional side-bar content. The resulting flexibility made it possible to set side-bars either as spreads on their own, or flowing into the main text areas, all the while maintaining readability and comprehension.
