From heartache beauty can emerge. From worry, and outlet can be created. The team behind Scout Books chose to create a unique edition of their journals in the aftermath of the election, coming together as a team and learning a bit more about printing in the process.

Project Description

On the morning of November 9th, our team came together to discuss, share tears, and offer each other support. We processed, and decided to take action rather than be quiet with our sadness. Combining ideas and skills from across our team, we created the We Choose Hope notebooks – designed, printed and bound in just one day. The notebooks were printed with red and metallic gold ink, and stitched with one gold and one red staple. We created a custom heart grid pattern for the pages, which we printed in red ink. All proceeds from the notebooks are being donated to the ACLU. As the book states on the back, we believe in the power of creativity, unity, diversity, compassion, and love.

Production Lesson(s)

We learned that a small, dedicated team can make magic. We weren't sure what overprinting the red and gold ink would result in, and we learned that it produced a shimmery third color. ”
