Psychoanalysis book series

This is the Portuguese edition of a book series on psychoanalysis themes written for professionals but with the broader public in mind.
The client requested a series of low budget covers with graphic impact that would differentiate themselves from the other books available on the subject. Although the design should differentiate these books from the self-help category they intentionally look accessible for the majority of the audience – professional or non professional.
Each book in the series is dedicated to a specific subject and the cover reflects the subject matter by using simple typographic illustrations that communicate symbolically with letters but not necessarily with words.
These books are aimed to sell as a series and so the design was developed also to trigger a collector attitude.
