I was asked to design an "attractive but timeless" book. The director told me it had to be cool but not based in an actual (or hipster) trend. Otherwise, in a couple of years it 'd look obsolete. A heavy challenge, to be honest.
In order to aim that, I took the evolution of design techniques through the time as a graphic concept, seen in the way the text is composed, as typography is — in my opinion – the basic knowledge/skill every designer needs.
For the cover I played with the two main dimensions in which it's used: the print design (formed by ink dots) & the digital design (formed by pixels). I designed two versions of the cover (225 copies of each were printed): The black: the sum of all ink colors & The white: the sum of all light colors, inspired by the different color theories/models.
Thank you for watching!
