Project A: Research Best Book/Magazine Cover [Alia M]

Title : Not a Stick Subject : Children Stories Story : “capturing the thrill of when pretend feels so real that it becomes real. With a stick in hand, the options are endless—whether it’s conducting an orchestra, painting a masterpiece, or slaying a dragon—give a child a stick and let imagination take over and the magic begin.” The best of it : really simple yet attracts the audience with such a great idea of having simple things be so imaginative. The book cover was also made simple to convey the story of possibilities.

Title : best of Business Cards Subject : Graphic Design Story: A collection of the worlds best business cards The Best of it : By having a photograph of a a book spilling it’s content gave this book a really unusual book cover that made it stand out from many others.

Title : What Logos Do Story: Behind creating logos and their purpose. The Bad of it : the title is weak and doesn’t stand out, the images are arranged in a way that doesn’t look too appealing, and crowded.

  1. Alia M nice books. I think I have the second one as e-book *cough*
    Yes the last book’s title doesn’t stand out when it should. thanks for sharing.

  2. the imaginative feeling to the 1st book is wild !! i really liked it
    the 2nd book cover is soo creative and powerful i believe =D

  3. The 1st book is very appealing.. The distribution of elements (illustration and text) on the spacious background sends the message about the wide imagination of children.. The hierarchy is very interesting; although both the title and the illustration are placed on the same level, the blue title stands out from the rest of elements..

    The title in the 2nd book cover grabs the eye due to the use of perspective as well as the contrast between the solid simple white and the scattered colorful business cards..

    The 3rd book cover is an example of unattractive use of grid system.. Yes Alia I’m with you.. Too boring
