Winter Forever Book Design

This is a book concept created as a class project. The goal was to use a music album’s title and artist as the title and author of a book, and then create a concept for the story and use it to inform the design of the book. I used Winter Forever by Seahaven, a band I love and consider good friends, for this concept. I gave it a bleak, dreary feel and came up with a dark, hopeless story to go with it. All photography by me, taken at Pinecrest in 2008. I love this design. FOR SALE if anyone wants this as their own book design.

The Psychedelic Furs Album Re-Design

This is a CD packaging re-design concept I did for a college project during my last year. I found a CD that I thought was poorly designed (the black and white one in the pictures) and gave it a makeover. I tried to take inspiration from the feel of the music, as well as the lyrics, and incorporate that into the design. I also created a fake poster to further bring the concept into reality. Creative direction, design, photography, typography, and concept by me.
