Discover and save creative ideas

    Recover of John Steinbeck's "Of Mice and Men". Using creative imagery representative of character elements.

    Sherlock Holmes White's Publishing //// I like how the string is chaotic and is suppose to represent smoke.

    We tried loads of photographic approaches for this cover before arriving at this. I created this illustration as a last-minute entry to the Cover Meeting, and amazingly it ended up being the finished jacket. Here's the finished cover, plus a close-up of the illustration.

    I love Jon Ronson's books and cannot wait to read this one - straight to the top of my reading list (EGG Feb 2015).

    I love how the alignment of the words are worked into the graphic so that it looks like the whale, and the red in the script font below contrasts with the blue enough to stand out a little, but doesn't make it stick out too much since it's not the focal point.

    designed by FBA : I drew from this an idea I have been toying with for my bookshelves. I can run book jacket blanks through my printer: white book covers add a color stripe for each genre and subject (yes, I still value my college books), for a bright and cheery re-do of what has become a cluttered mess. I really like this idea.

    SO clever, and the minimal use of color is beautiful. Another book jacket that gives the reader a puzzle to solve right away, and even with so much going on, this design is clean and comprehensible.
