Hachette Books - Doing it

I was comissionned by Wren & Rook (an imprint of Hachette Books) to design and illustrate the inside pages of a book called Doing it, written by the influencial vlogger Hannah Witton. The book is all about sex and relationships and how to navigate the intricacies of being a young adult. It is structured in easy-to-read chapters, tackling various themes that are echoed in the different patterns I designed for it.

The design had to be monochrome, so I decided to play with bold hand-painted patterns and thin brush lettering all along the pages. I wanted the book to look bold, attractive and surprising to any kind of reader (and not only teenagers).
