The Parkour and Freerunning Handbook Redesign

Parkour, a sport consisting of climbing, running, and jumping to get around obstacles, is explained and illustrated in Dan Edwardes’ book The Parkour and Freerunning Handbook. Being the first book of its kind to help teach people the sport, the overall design of the manual was outdated. A redesign of the manual was requested to reach a newer generation of Parkour enthusiasts looking to experience the sport. Using a limited color palette and a simplified illustration style, the design caters to a newer, more modern audience, as well as clearing up confusing tutorials and making the design more legible overall.
