For our ‘After Adoption’ sessions aimed at families, Creative Director Emily Phillips had taken her inspiration from book covers Ribeiro had designed. An array of carefully-selected vintage books were provided to spark dialogue between parents – who would perhaps be enticed down memory lane - with children who were given the choice to pick out books that were a mark of their individuality. One boy had taken lines from a Shakespeare play, revealing his interest in the theatre. Several chose to do self-portraits. A family of five found they had hidden artistic talent.
