In our last post, I mentioned the custom designed album we made of Sai’s Arangetram. The main objective of the album was to tell a story on every spread about a particular course during the Arangetram performance. This is sort of like doing a wedding album, but since Sai is essentially telling a story with her dance, we have to ensure we relay that story with a relatively small number of photos. Here are a few of the album spreads we included in her album.
While designing albums we think about & try to incorporate into our spreads are things like textures & embellishments as well as detailed photos for use in the background (in this case, Sai’s bells, hands, etc). As you can see from the examples below, we try to take a few moments captured in our photos and tell a dramatic story.
We’d love to show some of these albums to you in person, so please schedule a consultation time with us so we can talk to you in greater detail!
As an example of laying out each spread such that it tells a story, the above spread is all about receiving blessings from Sai’s Guru and family. Mixed use of color and b+w images in the spread helps to bring attention to the main picture without creating any clutter.
Designing unique layouts for each album really gets our creative juices flowing. We know this album is way for Sai’s family to treasure their daughter’s arangetram for years to come and compliments like “The album looks INCREDIBLE.” from Sai’s father inspires us to keep innovating with our album designs!
