As part of a unit entitled ‘Writing, Editing, and Publishing’ as part of my final year on my BA, a task was to create a book cover, blurb, biography, marketing plan and press release for an upcoming, fictional book. I was in charge of the book cover design, which was created entirely on Adobe Photoshop.
Our idea was to create a crime cover, knowing the conventions of the genre were very identifiable. Though some of the text may be quite cliche, our cover hit all the right bases, was both striking and would not look out of place on an actual book shelf.
Though group work was stressful at times, as it always tends to be, it paid off in the end as we got a high 2:1 for our assignment. Hooray!
