I had the opportunity to create a book design for the Clare Literary Journal. This publication is sponsored each year by Cardinal Stritch University's English Department. Literary submissions such as fiction, non-fiction, and poems from all over the country are chosen for this journal. English students and faculty at Cardinal Stritch University team up through the editing and publishing process to produce a variety of work. My client was an English Department Faculty member and my audience were national book lovers.
I created a fun, eye-catching, abstract design to intrigue my readers. My book cover design symbolizes national writers coming together in a pool of creative art (literature). On each inside page, I incorporated a shape from the front cover to show individuality in a collaborative publication. Essentially, my goal was to catch my audience's eye on a book shelf among many other books.
