Describe the brief from the client
Design a poster campaign for a book: WWF-India's Tiger Talk that highlights WWF-India’s role in tiger conservation to help the organisation get more funds for the cause.

Describe the challenges and key objectives
Considering the interesting typography and photography in mind, the posters needed to look just like a page from the book

Describe how you arrived at the final design
The typography brought alive the worlds of the gritty characters. Bold black type against a yellow background with exaggerated ascenders and descenders inspired by the tiger’s stripes gave the feeling of movement on a page. The typography complemented the photography and text and gave the posters a distinct character.

Give some indication of how successful the outcome was in the market
The book was launched by Jairam Ramesh, India’s Minister of Environment and Forests at a ceremony that featured many leading public figures.
WWF-India and Indian Council for Cultural Relations (ICCR) will use the book to promote the cause by conducting Tiger Talk’s photography exhibitions in places like Addis Ababa, London and Toronto.
This venture will be taken forward by none other than The Prime Minister of India, Dr Manmohan Singh.
