Washing up Is Good for You

Book design

We created these books in collaboration with Department Store for the Mind and the Octopus Publishing imprint, Aster.

This book is a ticklish antidote to the daily grind. Stories of how washing up, cooking tea and tending your garden could be good for you and sometimes even enjoyable.

With such a fun title to play with, this project was a dream. We worked with Veronica Wood to create the energetic illustrations that perfectly visualise the sentiment behind the book and James Champion to shoot the playful photography.

Katie and the Supafrank team bring the visual essence of Dept. Store for the Mind into the books with grace and ease, which are stunning. We have now collaborated with Dept. Store for the Mind and Supafrank on four books, and each is a beautiful read that exercises the mind.
