minimal and sustainable redesign of “the photographer's playbook”

to be able to produce as sustainably as possible, the design focuses on minimalism and is printed in 20% black. besides typography, the only design element is the abstract form of a camera lens. to save ink, it is visualized by a cutout, which at the same time makes it possible tolook through the cover onto the book like you would look through a lense.

to prevent the cutouts from ending up in the trash, they have “use me as...” instructions and basic photography tips printed on the back.
