Book Cover Final Project: The Picture of Dorian Gray

The Picture of Dorian Gray Book Cover

For out final project in my Imaging class we were to design a realistic book cover.

For someone who reads often, this was the hardest project for me. Before settling on this cover design, I had started designing 4 different book covers.

After a while to think about it, I chose The Picture of Dorian Gray. It’s one of my favorit classics and I felt like I could do a lot of different and creative things with this title.

This design is a little different from my other works because I used more textures and shadows than I did with any other projects, which I think shows how much I am continuing to learn.

And not to brag, but I did get a few compliments on this cover in the printing lab while I was mounting it. lol


Movie Poster Projects: Atonement

Atonement Movie Poster

For our final project in my computer graphics class we had to choose a movie and make a real life movie poster. One of my favorite movies is Atonement, because it’s a very good story and also because I LOVE James McAvoy. lol

I did have some movie logos and movie credits, but I could only load a JPEG on here.

Everyting on the poster was done in PhotoShop, beside the logos and credits, which were done in both Illustrator and InDesign. The title was a little tricky to get how I wanted it to look, but I think it looks very good.

I didn’t have too much trouble with my idea for how I wanted to poster to look, but I did do at least 3 different designs. I can say I’m very happy with how it turned out.

Now at the end of the semester, I can say that I have improved a lot from the beginning of this course. I really enjoy doing these kinds of things and hopefully I can make a living doing what I love.
