Front cover of Barbara Grays memorial booklet

In Loving Memory are a new small business offering bespoke Order of Service Funeral Booklets.

It’s not easy when we lose someone special and, at this time of grief, making arrangements can be difficult. In Loving Memory provide a unique service, advising and creating a beautiful Order of Service Funeral Booklet that is both personal and a fitting tribute to our loved ones that you will want to keep and treasure as a beautiful lasting memento.

The Challenge

Funerals are never easy occasions to attend or to organise. Pylon Design were asked to design and produce a beautiful Order of Service Funeral Booklet to represent the recently deceased that was both simple and elegant. Following the church service, the client requested a bespoke memorial booklet to be handed out to guests at the wake celebrating the life of Barbara, creating interesting talking points and historical facts about her long and happy life. As well as being informative, the booklet would evoke a range of emotions from happiness to sadness whilst creating a perfect and joyous memory of Barbara’s life.

The Solution

Barbara lived a full and wonderful life with an array of hobbies and interests that made her such a loving and knowledgeable person. Pylon Design and In Loving Memory wanted to incorporate her unique style into the bespoke Memorial booklet that embodied this elegant lady and her love of life.

The use of a full bleed black and white image that looked like an old 1940’s film photograph, typified the elegance of Barbara on the front cover. Simple, traditional typography in gold and grey, allowed the image to stand out as the focal point. Barbara excelled in everything she did and this was endorsed by the eulogy written by her sons and positioned throughout the booklet. Barbara was also a keen gardener and Pylon Design incorporated beautiful watercolour illustrations of her favourite plants and flowers continuing the theme used in the Order of Service booklet. Photographs of a young Barbara growing up and into her adult life including her carers towards the end of her years, her large family and all her friends filled the memorial booklet that gave it a real historical aspect. Adding snippets of Barbara’s diaries, including her time during the war years just endorsed the historical content but also how full and interesting Barbara’s life was. All of this content contributed to a memorable and fitting booklet that Barbara’s life deserved and can be viewed time and time again as a lasting memory to this special lady.
