The Truth About DatingThe Truth About Dating

Thomas Nelson Publishing

I designed and typeset the interiors of many books for Thomas Nelson Publishing. "Truth About Dating, Love & Just Being Friends" is a book by Chad Eastham, targeting young females, which fueled my "doodle" concept. I wanted the interior to be filled with torn paper, sticky notes and simple, playful little pen and pencil doodles that corresponded to the content.

Beyond typesetting the interior for "Heroes & Villains of the Bible", I conceptualized and illustrated the lion and snake medallions representing good and evil. The illustrations were created in Photoshop and used for chapter title pages. The compiling editor for this book was Tama Fortner, who was great to with.

John Trent's "I'd Choose You" also involved typesetting and some Photoshop work to pull elements from the illustration to use as supplemental imagery. An example of this would be in the first image where the glove was pulled out and placed in front of an illustrated box. Letters, frames and "roller coaster" text used to help supplement the illustration done by Judy Love.

Sustainability is emphasized with the packaging being constructed of 100% gardening peet. The company would market this product line around this unique feature which no national competitor offered at the time of design.
