Cocoon Therapy

Here is the story of a recent project for a small local business; Cocoon Therapy.

We met and discussed her requirements and the format for the brochure was decided; a concertina-folded booklet with women’s treatments on one side, men’s on the other.

Printed in two colours on each side of the sheet (green or brown and black) also saved on production costs. An unusual cream uncoated stock, inuit tactile, was selected.
