    les From The Break Room is a project created in my fall 2016 book structures class, where we not only came up with content for our books but built the structures as well. My goal for this project was to design and create a 32 page book based on a series of stories and experiences from my time in retail. ​ Tales From The Break Room explores telling multiple stories using a limited color palette and my own fonts and illustrations. Each of the illustrations were drawn by hand and refined in Adobe Illustrator. The stories are also written in my own handwriting to give the reader a more personal experience. ​ When creating the book, my biggest challenge was finding a way to tell the stories so they were short and to the point, but humorous as well. For this, I tried keeping the majority of stories to one page with an accompanying illustration on the opposite page. ​ The limited color palette throughout the book worked well and fit the simpleness of the stories and illustrations.

Short Stories From My Time in Retail
Book Design, 2016
Tales From The Break Room is a project created in my fall 2016 book structures class, where we not only came up with content for our books but
built the structures as well. My goal for this project was to design and create a
32-page book based on a series of stories and experiences from my time in retail.
Tales From The Break Room explores telling multiple stories using a limited color palette and my own fonts and illustrations. Each of the illustrations were drawn by hand and refined in Adobe Illustrator. The stories are also written in my own handwriting to give the reader a more personal experience.
When creating the book, my biggest challenge was finding a way to tell the
