I’d like to give a shout out today to my client Burns Recovered Support Group who have just published a truly stunning book, Beauty Is…
The book is a collection of photographs of burn survivors and is aimed to inspire others, who have suffered burns, in the realization that there IS a light at the end of the tunnel and that their lives will move forward.
Each photograph is accompanied by a short paragraph which details the age the burn occurred, the age in the picture and a description of what happened.
It is priced at $35 and is currently available for purchase here
Congratulation to everyone who made this book happen.
Last week saw the release of a new book by one of our clients, Edward Bison. His book, Mr Bison’s Journal, is a very funny collection of stories and observations and is a laugh out loud read. I was commissioned to not only illustrate each of the stories but also design the book cover. It was a fun project and fingers crossed it will become one of the top humor books of 2012/2013. It would make a great Christmas gift -see it on Amazon as a paperback and Kindle ebook
As part of the launch we updated his website www.mrbison.com moving it from a blogger powered blog, to the all singing and dancing WordPress platform and giving the site a mini design overhaul.
The home page now features a prominent call to action to buy the book and a video clip of a sample chapter. The site navigation was revised to include such as his Facebook fan Page
We also took the opportunity to re-code it as responsive website – I’ll fill you in on the ins and outs of that tomorrow.
As a graphic designer I have designed many things, logos, brochures newspaper ads, business cards, invitations, menus, graphics for t-shirts, 20ft banners that have hung on the side of a building, I could go on and on but I won’t bore you.
There is something however I have never tackled before and that is the design of a book cover, until now.
Here is a sneak peak at the cover of a new book by freelance writer Edward Bison
The book is a funny, light hearted collection of observations and stories geared towards the adult market.
I was also commissioned to illustrate the book , which was another first.
A revamped website will be launched shortly to coincide with the publication.
