Pick a book to redesign that has all the necessary components, such as text, captions, titles, subtitles, and large images than can be scanned at hi-res, like coffee-table books. Redesign sample spreads, not the entire book.
The Olympics. The history of it needs to be told well. The design should represent this history as well. The overall design problem is how to show a modern design of The Olympics book, but still feel connected to the original Greek ancestry. I developed this with new updated layouts that let the content stand out, as well as keep the viewer interested and surprised with each new layout that consistently fit in the grid. I also chose a font that was a sans serif that also had that Greek theme.
