Book of Alexanswers

September 2023

A weekly planner, a scrapbook, and a book of answers.

This project was a birthday gift for my roommate, as a way to combat her lonliness while our friends were studying abroad.

It is a collection of heartfelt notes from our friends integrated in a weekly planner. Many of the designs were left ambiguous (without labels) to encourage unrestricted usage as a scrapbook.


A design element specific to the
book, the thumb scale, was
used as a decorative element on
the front and back covers.

Purple thread was used to match
the covers, and the binding
was left as an open spine.
