New work

It’s about time I posted up some new work samples, so here you go.

A range of different academic titles above, and (because I do so many) a range of medical titles below. Just a very small sample of what I’ve been up to over the last 9 months. I always wait for the designs to be approved before I post them up, so there are lots more in the pipeline.

And finally some more cover designs for Hans Reitzels Forlag publishers in Copenhagen:

New work examples

Sorry it’s taken so long to post any new work. It’s all cover designs for CUP of late, not that I have any complaints about that. Thankfully, there is such a variety of design work just within this one area.

A while ago I posted about some book cover trends I had seen emerging of late, one of which involved the typography appearing to be stamped or stencilled and slightly distressed. It wasn’t long after that, that I had the chance to do a bit of type and image distressing myself.

So the images started out as full colour photographs, were changed to black and white, and a few photoshop filters used to give them a Banksky-esque style. The text was just smudged and blotched in photoshop, all in one colour on separate layers, and then colour overlays were added to the layers (as it’s easier to change this later if necessary, as was the case).

And then there’s a whole host of medical titles:Medical titles Feb13

Med titles2 Feb13Understanding Probability – well I understand the probability of me getting any work as a hand model is very slim, unless I decide to do the photograph myself, seeing as the previous version was of such poor quality. I did give my nails a quick scrub and file first.Hand model coverAnd a few more big topic titles:Big titles Feb 13Just a very small selection of work.
