New Ghost 2nd Edition

The book i produced for nobrow has gone to its second edition. The print finish is much nicer this time around and the colours truer to the origonal design.

Picador 40th Anniversary

Over the summer I was asked to design some of the covers for Picador's 40th anniversary series. The Brief was that every cover was to be designed only in solid black and white. Certain areas of the cover are printed in black ink and other areas are a glossy black foil. The process of the foil slightly de-bossing the paper and creating reflective area's creates shifts in tone and texture on the finished book.
Personally I was hoping for a classic typeface to run throughout the series to tie it all together, but this wasn't the case and I feel that some suffer from this like the cover for "Dirt Music".
