The Family Sabbatical

Jonathan Chapman Photography

About This Project

Minneapolis Photographer Jonathan Chapman and his family had an idea that turned into an amazing family adventure — a four-month “World as our Classroom” world tour.

Who wouldn’t want to create a travel blog to share new experiences with family and friends back home — and preserve memories for years to come?

Traveling to New Zealand, Thailand, Japan and Europe, this family of four took turns photographing and writing about their experiences abroad. Each contributed a unique perspective to their adventures.

Graphic designers Sam and Seth Bolhken created a logo, unique icons and quirky travel maps to fit with the design aesthetic of Jonathan Chapman’s business website.

I organized all the visual elements and travel plans into a comprehensive content strategy and overall website design. In addition, I customized WordPress and a premium theme so the site could change as quickly as the Chapman family’s itinerary and help bring their stories to life.
