The Serial Bible

A better way to digest the most influential book in history.

Problem: The Bible is long, verbose, and intimidating

There are many reasons for non religious people to read the Bible: to gain a greater understanding of theology, to trace how modern society was influenced by these writings, and for entertainment. You would be surprised how laden the Bible is with thrilling drama and political intrigue that rivals Game of Thrones.

Despite this, there are many barriers to picking up the Bible. It is often bound as a ponderous tome — a hassle to carry — with small text that's difficult to read.

As luck would have it, the Bible is already divided into “books.” The Serial Bible makes each book of the bible its own object: small digestible, and easy to pick up and read. The Serial Bible has a beautiful, modern, cover design. It's something people would want to be seen reading.

 I have edited and printed fourteen books in the series so far. They are all ready to pick up and read. I give them as gifts to practically everyone I meet.

Designing a Responsive Website: SerialBible.com

I designed a website for the SerialBible and then coded it from scratch. I made the website responsive using mediaqueries. The design adjusts itself based on the width of thee screen, so whether you are on desktop, tablet, and mobile, the site will look beautiful and legible.

The website is made with HTML and SASS.

Social Media

The Serial Bible project has garnered tremendous interest from friends, families, and colleagues, so I've begun bringing it to social media to drum up more interest in anticipation for selling the books.

Using Instagram lets me experiment with different aesthetic treatments and gauging how people respond to each. Check it out and give a follow or like @serialbible

"Each volume of this handsome Serial Bible is a startlingly fresh graphic presentation: old wine in new boxes."
