John Walker - Author
John Walker is an award-winning British gardening and environment writer with over 30 years combined experience in professional gardening, horticultural teaching and the garden media.
Working with John, we updated the design of his existing book ‘Weeds: An organic, earth-friendly guide to their identification, use and control’.
The book is intended to be used as a reference book, so, keeping the reader in mind, there were a few important elements to consider. How legible is the font and how easy is it to navigate around the book. This was particulary important in the ‘Know your weeds’ section. The entries were arranged alphabetically and a traffic light colour coding was used to create an at-a-glance guide to how easy, difficult or urgent dealing with each weed is.
We also worked with John to create a series of front covers using his very own photography for a set of four books.
