Hey, I design books. Did you know? That’s me, over at Inkspiral Design. I love my job, so much so I even do my job when no-ones paying. Like this: last year I set myself a challenge to design book covers for my ten favourite books of the year. The rules are simple: I have exactly twenty minutes at my computer to create them, and that is all. (Wanna see last year’s?)
And so, presenting part one of this year’s challenge.
Notes: not much to say, really! Bunch of vectors in layers, with typography.
Notes: stock photos processed with the Sandstorm action (via graphicriver), plus typography and some other doctored images, then run through Prisma.
Notes: Suspiria is featured in the book a number of times, and thus… my version!
Notes: stock photos run through sandstorm and fire actions, plus vectors, typography, etc. The ‘and’ ambigram can be found here; I’d normally source public or stock images, but, well, time. Whole thing processed by Prisma.
The Rings of Anubis by E. Catherine Tobler
Notes: straightforward; this one’s all photoshop and stock photos…
Still to come on the 20 minute design challenge: the Power of Dark by Robin Jarvis, Boo by Neil Smith, Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell, Husky by Justin Sayre and Lolito by Ben Brooks.
