Always You Romance Cover Design
I Worked with Headdesign London design agency to work on a Fictional novel titled ‘Always You’ written buy successful novelist Erin Kaye.
I was briefed to create a 2 figures central to the book, a couple walking towards each other. The couple are 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 a 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 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 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 planes 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 Headdesign, and I enjoyed working with the design team. You learn to work quickly and deliver a 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 to much from it.
