Inspiration:

I believe that mental and emotional fitness is just as important as physical fitness. So I looked for guided journals that can help me maintain an uplifting daily routine. But I felt there was much room for improvement in what I found - particularly when it came to look and feel, features, and usability.

So I decided to design it myself. I aimed to create a sophisticated, fresh design, and provide tracking and analytical tools that nurture well-being and life balance.

Design Considerations:

I had two main considerations when designing this product:

First, it was a new product to an existing line, yet different in functionality and purpose. So I aimed at creating a distinctive look while keeping familiarity with the product family. To contrast the other products' darker look, for this journal's cover I used a light color scheme. However, I preserved the radial / upper-central design theme.

The second important consideration was usability. I've noticed that it's much more comfortable to write at the upper parts of journal pages, as the body of the book offers support for the hand. So I placed the more writing-heavy sections towards the top of the spread, while keeping any sections that require only reading or minimal writing / box-checking / item circling, towards the bottom of the pages.

CREATIVE STYLE:

With this design I aimed for a "personal" feel. Since it's a wellness-focused product I used the intuitive green and white color scheme. I felt the almost-white cover would create a sense of breathability, spaciousness, and purity. Throughout the design I used the black color as an accent, to add contrast (make the design a bit punchier) and a bit of a "cool" feel.

Each spread is dedicated to a single day, and has a Morning and Evening routine, which I placed at far edges of the spread, set apart with a green background. I kept the spreads' design symmetrical to give a soothing, calming sense of completion.
