Weaving Regional Innovations

typographic solution with “weaved” texts

The cover design takes its inspirations from the term “weave”. The keywords from the book are laid out vertically and horizontally, just like weaving threads together. The colours used are cream and green, taken from a coconut that is an important element in the case study quoted in the book. The book carries an honest, unadorned look of a business book, while the soft colours make it approachable at the same time.
