Houtekiet – Book cover designs
Book Cover Designs

These are some of the book cover designs I made in recent years for Uitgeverij Houtekiet. I designed all these covers and came up with all the design concepts as well.

Left: Book cover design for the updated version of Pleidooi voor individualisme (A Plea for Individualism) by Dirk Verhofstadt. 

Right: Design for Moed, de kracht van bezieling by Jan Van der Vurst: a book about courage that would also be used in a management context. Since 'moed' (courage) is such a strong word, the emphasis lies on that word typographically. I also added an image of the silhouette of a person literally taking a leap of faith.
Left: Haal alles uit uw geld (roughly translated: ‘Getting everything you can out of your money’) is a book by Luc Van den Borre & Danny Reweghs that is accessible and has tips and tricks about money.
I came up with the idea of combining a piggy bank with a butcher chart for a pig, since… well, that kind of translates exactly what the title says in one image. It was one of those eureka moments, although I didn't have a bath tub at the time.
 
Right: My book cover design for a book called De Tijd van Groen by Stijn Vanderhaeghe, a book about the 14 Belgian winners of the green jersey in the Tour de France. Since winners of the points competition are usually the best sprinters, I based the design on those typical finish photo’s that are used to define the winner when there is sprinting involved at the finish. The two kinds of green I used are based on the old color and the new color of the jersey.
Left: Design for 'De grote verwarring' (The big confusion) by Luckas Vander Taelen, a book about how we should react as a western society to islamic fundamentalism. The main typographic element on the page is an inverted question mark that is in fact an Arabic question mark – since Arabic text is written from right to left.

Right: Book cover design for ‘Bluf’, a story about – indeed – bluff, set in the 1970’s – hence the use of the retro photo and colors. The book is about a man that is a typical 'bon vivant' and a ladies' man, which this old stock photo from the 1970's seemed to picture perfectly.
