The authors, the civil engineer Triantaphyllos Adamakopoulos and the forestry scientist Katerina Zagaretou approached us to design their brand identity and to design their first hiking guide "Olympus, 60 routes". This challenging project required close collaboration with the client to piece together a photography database, a map database, route descriptions before turning these into book spreads. This information, along with multiple charts, dozens of processed images, tables and additional information about Olympus mountain, was then laid out in colour coded guide sections. Our team designed a robust and stylistic custom template allowing easy route browsing in a pocket sized book. The final 264 pages feature not only 60 unique routes but also extended information about Olympus geography, geology, hydrography, vegetation, flora, fauna and monuments.
