Down Syndrome - Ability & Dignity


Portfolio/Graphic Design


Overview

This handmade book was created in the do-si-do style, meaning that there are two covers and two signatures sewn together to a piece in between. This way the book can be opened from both sides and there isn't a "front" or "back." I titled this book Ability and Dignity to represent the struggles that people with Down Syndrome face on a daily basis. This book aims to tackle issues of education, opportunities in the workforce, stereotypes, and more; while also spotlighting two pioneers who have beat the odds and proven Down Syndrome doesn't have to hold anyone back from achieving their dreams.
