Mining and the Environment – Book

This book project shows how good design can facilitate a long time vision to becoming a reality. The authors began working on their book for some ten years. While they were looking for right publisher – DID helped the authors to create the book’s layout, information structure, typographic system, and colour scheme. As the book would serve as a comprehensive text book with almost 900 pages, DID advised limiting the colours scheme to two colours to both minimize production costs and keep the visuals interesting. DID worked closely with authors redesigning hundreds of graphics and diagrams to support the text. The publisher accepted both the book’s contents and all of DID’s design ideas. The result is a substantive and comprehensive text book that is manages to be “easy to read and fun to browse,” a common comments expressed by readers.
