The cover needed to represent classic texts that still apply today. I chose formal typography and stained glass imagery and juxtaposed them on a very modern, metallic blue background. The design was so well received by the church membership that they switched to the Student edition for their primary book cover.
My role: Graphic Designer, Illustrator, and Pre-press
My responsibilities: cover design, illustrated the stained glass seal, prepared files for press, and tested the metallic material on press
Production materials: metallic silver cover stock, 6 colors: CMYK with 2 spot, and gloss film laminate.
Production notes: Starting with a metallic silver paper, I used white ink on any areas where I wanted an opaque color (yellow text and selected parts of the stained glass seal). The blue ground is a bright Pantone ink printed directly on the silver paper making cover reflective.
