New Website Have A Look

So basically when I was doing my HND we had a brief to create a website for ourselves, overall I wasn’t happy with this at all so I have taken it upon myself to create myself a more professional site, in which possible clients etc. can contact me on and look into myself abit more.

I will be updating this site all the time and it isn’t 100% yet, I have a lot more planned.

So if you get a chance have a look on: http://alexrichardson93.wix.com/alexrichardsondesign

Any questions or know how contact me on either the new site or via here!

Thanks

Book 2 Research

Even though I could design a book jacket in the classic Penguin book style, I didn’t think it would be very suitable seeing that the book says on the blur that it features photography inside, this put me off going for a very classic looking design.

Type:

I wanted to still keep the design simple using very limited colours but I wanted it to more modern, The type will saying the same I think simply because there’s no need to fix something that doesn’t need to be fixed, the typeface I very easy to read and it does the job well, the size might be adjusted from the classic design but other than that it will stay the same.

Colours:

Now because this book is about “The Natural History of Britain and Ireland” I straight away started to think about doing a green book cover, this will emphasis the nature side of the book, while keeping it still interesting and modern.

After looking at this design I realised that instead of doing the whole design in a green colour I could just make the image solid and fill it the green colour while keeping the background a cream colour, keeping in with the theme of classic penguin books, the black type works really well on this design and the various colours on the image is something that I colour think about.

The more I look at design feature this type of clean, solid images the more I want to use it, these design have a bit more detail than the previous design but this works even better than the last I think, one thing that I have to take into consideration is the amount of time I have to design and create this design, 4 hours from now It has to be in.

Finding this design was a treat, the colours are exactly what I was envisioning, this helps me a lot because now I don’t have to muck around seeing if the colours work because I see that they do.

Chance Waters Album Cover

I’ve been following this “sarsar” on “Instagram” for like a year and a half now and she is an amazing at illustrations, she has so much natural talent and her own personal style of drawing is out of this world, she uploads work all the time so and all of her artwork is free hand, but if you have “Instagram” follow her @”sarsar”.
