Sui Ki Law will need to approve that you worked on “Book covers design” before we add you as a collaborator.

Book covers design

The project is about designing four book covers which are titled Modern, Serif, Sans Serif and Slab Serif. To illustrate the contents of these books,
I designed the covers using their corresponding types of typeface. I put emphasis on the connections between letters. As each kind of typeface has their own unique form and shapes, using the same approach to the covers design gives completely different impressions.
The design of typographic book covers relates to understanding letters as forms. I and my classmates created large banners using assigned typefaces. We explored on counter spaces, contrasts and alignments.

We then cropped parts of the banners by placing a black square around and traced out the cropped image on a piece of paper to see how it looks and feels. This exercise allows us to observe details in each letter and to have a hands-on experience in understanding typography.
