My second project in my Computers & Art class was to design a book cover. I chose to do The Walk by Richard Paul Evans. This author has a very consistant style throughout all of his books and I wanted to try and stay close to that style with my book cover design. I started with some sketches and then realized that I just needed to go out and take some pictures. I wanted the cover to be a photograph of either nature or a road to help relate to the meaning of the book. Here are some of the pictures that I had taken and thought about using.
After, I had chosen some pictures I worked on designing a cover. I designed a few different covers to see which ones I liked the best.
I then spent a while revising and editing my book cover before finally coming up with my final layout and design.
