I often do a bit of design work on a weekend, and on Sunday just gone I decided to take my work into the pub and work on some doodles for a book cover design.
I knew I wanted something illustrative and bright because the design brief was to create a book cover design which would ‘make people feel good’ and to include happy and bright colours. The remit was also that it look good on a book shelf and ‘stand out’.
So I doodled this in the pub while munching on chips and sipping wine
And then the next day I turned it into this happy bright cover design, which I’m feeling exceptionally proud of, and the client is extremely happy with.
