For this assignment I was provided with the publisher’s logo, trim size, copy, and a variety of images. I selected one of the images and used it to create a clipping mask of an eagle feather. The same shape was then repeated and ghosted on other parts of the cover to add interest and unify the design. Subtle textures and muted tones combine with serif and script typefaces to give the design the feeling of a long lost journal. Shown above is the flat design with crop and fold marks included.
