The client wanted to include every degree program offered at Kapi‘olani Community College (there are over forty). So I started the design process by gathering representative imagery from each discipline and combined them into an eclectic yet cohesive cover.
In addition to the degree programs, the client wanted to highlight the campus’s emphasis on Hawaiian culture and values, so on the back cover I included a canoe with the words “Kahikoluamea” across it along the Oli Holo, our campus chant.
One of the challenges was designing a layout that provided enough room for students to record their notes, due dates, and deadlines along with client mandated content such as the student conduct code. These are some of the inserts templates that were used in planning the page specific layouts.
5-1/2" x 8-1/2" with 96 pages
front/back - 4 color process (cmyk)
insert pages - 1 color pantone solid coated reflex blue c, spiral binding (blue)
