My Trip to Grandpa's

A book collaboration with the paintings from Iris Sutton, featured in May's First Friday show, Daydreams of Spring.

Local painter and  Fairbanksan Iris Sutton sure knows how to uplift anyone who encounters her work. Her bright, colorful, and abstract interpretation of Interior Alaskan fauna is truly one of a kind, putting viewers in an almost dream-like state.

 

We collaborated together to make a long-time dream of hers become a reality: publishing a children’s book. In a signed and numbered limited edition print of 500, we utilized these paintings together in an adventurous, dreamlike Alaskan story titled “My Trip to Grandpa’s.”

Using the look and feel of the book, we developed branded assets including hand printed tees, stickers, and art prints for a fully cohesive show.

LOGOTYPE DESIGN

We used hand drawn block letters as the book cover font and filled them in with a bright color palette to reflect Iris Sutton's paintings, setting a playful tone for the brand.

BOOK LAYOUT + DESIGN

Using Iris Sutton's bold signature to spearhead the look and feel, we created dark splotches and swirling lines to integrate each painting into the page.
