40 Oaks Book Design

This book, published by Toronto Christian Resource Centre, celebrates 40 Oaks, a building and its residential community in Toronto’s Regent Park redevelopment.

James developed a look and feel for the book’s duotone interior that allowed for more text on each page while still providing the openness of white space. This created a captivating balance between the text and the beautiful, contemporary full-bleed photography. Thanks to the careful blend of stories, images, art direction and typography, the book became an inviting presentation of a Toronto community.

Developed and designed at Profis Communications Inc; photography by John Beebe.
