ACT with Pain

Measurement, efficacy and mechanisms of Acceptance & Commitment Therapy

By Hester Trompetter

Thesis cover design package
Cover illustration, design & typography, bookmarker + chapter page layout (proposal)

Background information:
In our first meeting, Hester Trompetter told me that she really loved the Monarch butterfly. I found that the free movement of the butterfly was a nice symbolism for being ‘free of pain’. Almost all the butterflies are individually illustrated by hand. The cell structure is inspired by a figure from her thesis, and is spread across the cover like symmetrical flowers.
