To Sweden Through Dublin.

To Sweden through Dublin is a publication covering stories of migrants, travelers lost in between countries as a result of that they've lost of their own. The stories within are of a nature that makes one shiver slightly, they're graphic and sorrowful. And thus there was a potential challenge in making people keep reading, keep feeling and not throw the book aside due to feeling overwhelmed.
With the ambition to solve the potential problem, I looked at possible ways of giving the publication a design, an outer skin that would help soothe a reader and making her more receptive while progressing through the stories. The outcome was a vivid and bright piece of design. Transforming the publication into a design object that through form, colors, typography, and texture would act as a pillow apart from providing insight and information.
