And Headway team believes in the value of craftsmanship since the best things are made for people by people. That’s why illustrators create covers for each summary from scratch, playing with metaphors and profound creative ideas.
There are many topics that Headway covers and one of them is women’s power. These illustrations show both fragility and empowerment as woman’s weapons in the fight for equality. It could also be a metaphor for the strength and internal beauty that a woman develops from confrontation. The battle for her rights doesn’t exhaust her but gives her even more strength.
Headway’s illustrators also have found a way to reflect the pursuit of happiness – the fundamental aspiration of humankind. However, it was one of the most challenging topics to visualize. How to show life without barriers or our feelings while dealing with problems?
Current social issues also get their coverage on the Headway app, for example, racism in the modern world. Such illustrations communicate the importance of equality and reflect our connection with each other.
