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.
