For my Book cover design I chose to focus on creating a book cover for a fantasy book with some of my celtic designs. I chose the color pallette from photos from Unsplash that reminded me of the themes of the book. I chose a light green and gold theme, to go with these components and convey a natural feeling. I also used a interrupted border frame to convey an otherworldly feeling, and utilized swan images to add as illustrated elements, swimming out of the frames.
Magazine Cover Design
I tried to use a natural color palette. I chose desert colors of orange and blue to be the color theme of the articles, and the background I stuck with a green that made the article pop. I used some photos from Unsplash, which I credited. I also utilized a photo from Unsplash that I turned into a posterized element, and posterized some of my personal photos.
I tried to use a neutral color palette. I chose A color theme dark blue and grey to go with a bold and neutral color to balance out the colors in the photos that I took at the park, or downloaded from Unsplash. I also used a clipping mask for the G and F, with photos of stone from the park, and a waterfall. I staggered the lettering and title to show a feeling of falling. I went with a lighter color blue to compliment the article.
For my article I decided to utilize a comic book frame and elements, and flames behind Tom Ellis instead of the wings. I changed the color themes to red and black, with white fonts.
