In anticipation for Kevin Breel‘s new book, Boy Meets Depression, I was asked to create a series of typographic images that would be sharable on social media platforms. After working through numerous styles and ideas that fit the concept and the heart of the book, we landed on using a rough handwritten style photographed in a notebook. This made a deep connection between the soulful, “bumpy and brutally honest” nature of the book and its contents. Almost like a handwritten diary or journal.
About the Book
“In his first ever book, Kevin Breel dives in to the deep and dark parts of his childhood. In a memoir that is both raw and real, Kevin explores what it means to grow up. Through dysfunction, loss, pain and- at one point- even suicidal thoughts, Kevin brings the reader on a ride that is bumpy and brutally honest. Through all of it, there is a powerful story about hope, love and what it means to be human. Boy Meets Depression is a book that illuminates how the real challenge in life isn’t trying to be perfect, it’s accepting the dark parts of ourselves.”
