THE EVERLASTING MEMORIES
Since the brief asks to celebrate the life and work of a craft person, the man I chose to talk about is Jean Tabet a craftsman specialized in old chain Jewelry design. I decided to address his artistic journey and the successes he accomplished through his words and images.
After interviewing the craftsman and learning further about Tabet’s interesting life, I have decided to tell his story in a way that the outcome could be kept for a longer time. A designed typographic diary unlike the regular ones that depicts turning point moments of his life and focus on specific significant events that occurred in his professional life.
On top of to that, instead of flipping through the pages like a normal book, I have decided to make a pullout sheet that opens in every spread to highlight a specific year of great achievements. In the diary, I used direct dialect as if the craftsman is writing about himself.
The title of the book is “The Everlasting Memories”. It says it all about the main creative concept. Since I am compiling Tabet’s life and his journey in a diary, and since his career nearly came to an end, all what will be remember are the memories that will last forever.
