Creative Summary

This book project focuses on how story-telling reflects the flow of people’s identities along with their growth. Narrative identity reconstructs the autobiographical past and imagines the future in such a way as to provide a person’s life with some degree of unity and meaning. There are 7 stages of narrative identity which evaluate how people understand themselves.

I created a book project inspired by Dan P. McAdams's theory of “Narrative Identity”. There are 7 stages of narrative identity, and each of the stages reflects how people understand themselves. Primary research of questionnaires is collected in the book.Layout designs in the book which show the 7 stages of narrative identities and the visualization of questionnaires

The book is composed of kettle stitched pages along with accordion pages.
