Earlier this month I had the opportunity to be a featured artist for the Wiley Book Cover Challenge and for my efforts I was rewarded with 14 various books that I got to choose from a quite varied list and guess what? I’m giving them away for free (inc. postage) here on Just Creative Design.
My Book Cover Design
You can view my cover design below or on the actual featured artists page here – please ignore the orange border that they have placed around my design on that page. The concept of my cover was to stand out from the other Photoshop books that were so busy and crowded… I went with a nice simplistic approach that reflected the name of the book and would look great in print.
I also emphasised the ‘right-brainers’ theme of the book by making the text sideways so as to make the reader turn their head to the right to read the text of the book – subtle, I know. There is also a subtle exclamation mark made with the word Photoshop. Did you see that one? The font I used was Meta, which is one of the best 30 fonts that every designer should know / own.
Anyway, you may be wondering, how do I get my free books? Well over the next few months I will be having various small ‘challenges’ or ‘tasks’ in separate blog posts starting with the first one now.
The first book I am giving away is Teach Your Self Visually: Photoshop CS3 and that comes with free postage to anywhere in the world.
