Always You Romance Cover Design
I Worked with Head design London design agency to work on a Fictional novel titled ‘Always You’ written buy successful novelist Erin Kaye.
I was briefed to create 2 figures central to the book, a couple walking towards each other. The couple is placed in a countryside scene. I illustrated the scene background, with a Willow and magnolia illustrated tree and in front of the tree, I created a Swirly hedge and shrubs, with a farm gate, to give a sense and feel of the countryside. The illustration was created with a silhouette style. The trees and swirly hedge are created with stylised leaves which I placed together to create the mass of the hedge and the tree.
The Title in the sky ‘Always You’ I drew with my Wacom in illustrator using the pencil tool, which is a tool I like to use because of the ease you are able to go over vector lines and smooth out the bezier anchor points. I created the title to feel as if a plane created it with smoke from the plane’s engine, flowing in the centre of the book cover.
I enjoyed working on the Always You romance cover design, it came together easily from brief to final artwork. The brief was clear and concise from Head design, and I enjoyed working with the design team. You learn to work quickly and deliver an artwork which answers the brief, It takes time and experience. The most important aspect of answering the brief is to follow the brief, and not deviate too much from it.
