Heart Not Hype

Tom Henderson’s Heart Not Hype is written as a 7-day guide for someone who is starting their journey in Christian life. The task was to make the content visually interesting to his young audience without trivializing the material. Our goal in the book layout and illustrations was to enhance and support the text without distracting from it. The book was conceived as a workbook, so we left ample margins for readers to make notes and a section of questions with space to write and reflect at the end of each chapter.

Supporting the idea of journey in book layout and illustrations

Throughout the book we made visual references to the core idea of the journey of faith with the dashed lines, giving the overall book layout a sense of motion as the reader moves through the book. We created simple illustrations to give the reader another way to think about some of the concepts. The simple and direct book jacket design supports the meaning of the title–that the journey of faith is not about the hype that surrounds a single event or decision, but is about the slow process of how the heart is changed.
