We took this project from concept to completion.
The client contacted us several months after her husband died in a workplace accident. She asked if we would create a celebratory written account of her husband’s life that she could distribute to friends and extended family.
We researched the family background and its roots in a conservative Mennonite community in Paraguay, and then interviewed friends and family members as well as the client (who spoke broken English).
We then transcribed the interviews, compiled written testimonies from a dozen other individuals, and edited the manuscript into a smoothly reading narrative. About sixty photos and documents were scanned, retouched, and captioned. We designed the book and cover, placed the photos and documents in the body of the text, and coordinated the printing and binding of 200 copies with Blitzprint printers.
