Our newest project is Illustration, for this project we need to design 3 book covers, we need to choose one theme such as romance, science fiction, crime etc
The designs can be as plain or as wacky as we wish, we need to research book covers by going to book stores or looking at ebook covers online.
We can sketch digitally or scan in drawings or use photography.
Deadline is 3 weeks from now.
When considering typography make sure it fits with the story and design.
One of the favorite authors is Jojo Moyes and i will research some of her books and covers.
Learn to capture the core idea from the book
Narrow your focus- focus perhaps on a specific company, eg penguin books
Consider a layout.
There is no wrong way to approach this project.
Not about great art, its about a great idea and great art direction.
Book dimensions are totally up to us.
Focus mainly on front but can design back and spine too.
