ABOUT Jesus, An Introduction

Shortlisted at the 2011 Cream Award for Best Use of Photography.

Jesus, An Introduction is a booklet illustrating some of the most meaningful moments of Jesus' life. Devided in spreads, each original text is accompanied by a photography. Following a first meeting with the clients to show the design options, the concept of knots has been unanimously approved.

For each extract, research has been lead to develop a symbolic illustration of their key elements. A main rope is always used to represent Jesus, while other characters or actions use all kinds of threads. Knots are alternately figurative or abstract, complex or raw, imposing or discreet, all accordingly to what they are meant to tell.
