Recently I've been involved in the redesign of a book called The Horror Crossover Encyclopedia by Robert E. Wronski Jr. published by 18thWall Productions. I made the eBook cover and print book jacket for their Halloween release, using an artwork from a very talented artist called Axel Medellin. I've also been working on cutting backgrounds out of photos for a client. I think I will be adding a processes page too: on how I go through a project and what I can do in photoshop.
In November I will be covering a small holiday of a Graphic Designer who works for "Not Just A Print". They are a personalised print company. I have been practicing how to create an order using their design templates and customer requests. Which are usually personal messages, significant dates and song lyrics tied together. They are usually intended as a gift for a birthday, anniversary, graduation, wedding or retirement. Credit goes to: www.notjustaprint.com
I created this ebook to practice my skills in making book covers from scratch without artist's artwork to build from. Which is most often the case when I'm making ebooks and print jackets for books. My objective was to make it easy to read in a small thumbnail size that you would get on Amazon when it is listed. I think I achieved that and made flowers for the background as it is based on forest fruits. I chose to make a smoothie recipe book for the objective because I found photos of intensely colourful smoothies and thought they would be eye-catching photos.
