ACTion Commemorative Book
ACTion Programme Commemorative Book
Over the past eight years, the Aged Care Transition (ACTion) Programme has helped more than 70,000 patients in providing post-discharge care. In 2017, it was merged into the Hospital to Home programme. To commemorate the ending of ACTion, the Agency for Integrated Care (AIC) entrusted us to design and publish a commemorative book that showcased the history, achievements, and the care coordinators involved in the programme. The client wanted a simple, professional and modern look. At the same time, the book should not look excessively expensive. It had to also convey authenticity and emotion.
The white, hardcover commemorative book looks clean and refined. On top of that, we used a “rainbow” hot stamp title, giving the book a colourful reflective glow that looked fresh and crisp. The endpapers were coated with a glossy, silver colour. This helped to give the programme a respectful farewell as silver is associated with sophistication and grace.
For the contents of the commemorative book, we took a clean cut approach to the layout. The titles of each chapter were placed against a pleasant orange background, and several infographics were used to make the statistics involved easier to understand.
Most importantly, the commemorative book contained the different heartwarming stories of the patients who have been through the programme. With their permission, we captured touching images of the interactions between them and the care coordinators. This truly helped to showcase how ACTion integrated the patients back into their communities.
Photoshoots of the care coordinators and ACTion managers from 12 hospitals in Singapore were conducted.They felt really happy to be involved, providing many laughters and smiles. Moreover, they submitted photos that reflected past experiences and memories during the programme, which were later included in the book.
We are thankful to AIC for giving us this meaningful opportunity to document the success of the ACTion programme.
