This is really awesome.
I'd just like to thank those of you who've followed my progress these couple of years and also thanks to the new ones for checking out my work. If you're on tumblr, please give it a like or a reblog to help me get into the semifinals, I would appreciate it so much!
is an editorial design exercise I did called Conquerors. It’s a three book hardcover
set with a pine box/container featuring three of history’s greatest military
geniuses. The Alexander book is the only “real” one of the three; its fourteen
spreads were cut and bound together by hand and then padded with about 150
book has a dust jacket with the title cut out, borrowing the texture and colour
of the busy oil paintings that wrap around the hardcovers underneath. The
visual idea I had in mind for this project was to use contrast of value and
complexity/simplicity to create a sense of drama between its pages. Minimalism and a generous use
of negative space were major components all throughout the final design
decisions. The extravagant and saturated oil paintings served to contrast this
particular feel of design. I hand cut a stencil and spray painted the title onto
a sheet of transparent duralar for the title page. The ideas of multiple layers shown there and on
the cover were implemented in efforts to produce a tactile and inviting experience
when picking up and flipping through the book.
Sorry about the covers and some of the pages; they're a little wonky because I had to bike home with them in the pouring rain..
