book Series

Graphic Design

I created this fictional book series as the final project for an art and design course. Choosing to focus my concept on a non-fiction work, specifically a memoir trilogy, I wanted my design to be simple and elegant while still telling the trilogy's story. 

 
 

 
 

Sketches

I began my process by sketching and playing with initial concepts, iterating through various shapes once I honed in on my direction. 

 
 
 

Ink studies & Exploration

After choosing the sketches I wanted to explore further, I did studies using ink, working with the medium to portray the various stages of the trilogy through various shapes. 

 
 
 

Final Design

I chose to work with the same shape for all 3 books and to let the ink tell of its progression. These final posters were created using the chosen ink pieces and Adobe Photoshop.
