DFR-Roger, Over and Out
DFR-“Roger, Over and Out!”
Tribute Book. 187 pages, 60 photos. 6 x 9. Perfect binding, softbound. 200 copies. 2005
We took this project from concept to completion.
The client contacted us several months after her husband died in a workplace accident. She asked if we would create a celebratory written account of her husband’s life that she could distribute to friends and extended family.
We researched the family background and its roots in a conservative Mennonite community in Paraguay, and then interviewed friends and family members as well as the client (who spoke broken English).
We then transcribed the interviews, compiled written testimonies from a dozen other individuals, and edited the manuscript into a smoothly reading narrative. About sixty photos and documents were scanned, retouched, and captioned. We designed the book and cover, placed the photos and documents in the body of the text, and coordinated the printing and binding of 200 copies with Blitzprint printers.

"Thank you for your work on the Make Children First year-end newsletter. Feedback on the finished product has been very positive. I was impressed with how diligently you worked to learn about the Initiative and its activities, and how you worked with us until we were happy with it."

"Having recently set up my own recruitment consultancy, I realised I needed a website but I had absolutely no idea how to go about it. Philip guided me through the process, educating me as we went along, the main focus being on editing the text to make it appropriate for a website. The finished site is now up and running and generating excellent results. My thanks to Philip for his ideas, advice, and patience!"
