Book Design Process • Choosing the Cover — OLD BRAND NEW

While I was digging through my folders for a file yesterday, I found these alternate book options. I thought it’d be fun to share them with you all to see the process. This was the first pass They were designed by Ten Speed’s talented graphic designer, Lizzie Allen. I loved that the whole team embraced my love of color and was intentional in making it a vibrant one. The top two were my favorites of the bunch. I love the yellow border and yellow striped banquette. Initially I wanted my book to be yellow since it’s so me. But I felt like the space itself wasn’t vibrant enough. And on the right is our New Orleans living room. It has a left border which is from one of my artworks. I kinda liked this mix of print and photo but wasn’t sold on it either.
