Textbook design

The Australian Political System in Action is written to be an 'engaging introduction to the dynamics of the Australian political system'. As such the design needed to be a balance between accessible and also vibrant enough to retain student interest on a topic that has a reputation for being significantly dry. 

This title is still one of my favourite designs for the contrast it presents - the text may be weighty and serious but the design is light-hearted and zesty. Pops of yellow from cover to pages serve to keep the energy levels vibrant whilst a tight grid and traditional serif ensure the content is readable and student friendly.
