Tome is a Graphic Design MFA thesis project created by Chung Yu Alex Chen. Alex was intrigued by the challenge of “how to encourage more people to read printed books.” After research and interviews, he found the most effective way to motivate people to read is to increase the sense of being connected to other people. So he created a share-economy based application which rebuilds the connection between books, social media, and people. Tome—
a platform that connects real people to real books.
