Book Covers & Page Layouts








































































































































   




























































































Page layout is an art form where heavy bodies of text are arranged in a visually engaging manner.  Images are pleasing to the eye, while text bodies appear blocky and unappealing.  Utilizing different layout designs and patterns, I attempt to present text as a visually appealing component to the images which they accompany.  Below are some example of my work both from school and the professional field. 
 

Transitions
This is a book cover which I was commissioned to redesign for the client. The background was created from a personal photograph while the text content was carried over from the previous book cover.  This book is currently available for purchase on Amazon.

Digitized painting
The image is a digitally altered photograph of a painting, attempting to tell the story of how photographs become code when captured by digital cameras.

The written article is an excerpt from a project proposal. The content was slightly altered to give a magazine-like tone and less of a project proposal theme.

The magazine-style two page spread was created as an example of a balanced layout design.
