Covered Up Blog

Where you will find interviews, company news, and more

More please!

I am reposting this simply because it’s amazing (Look how fast she is for crying out loud!), fun to look at and gives a glimps into what nuances of design a designer can enter into to achieve a final look for a cover. Obviously we know that prior to this video being severely editied, the designer, in this case Lauren Panepinto, had to meet about the project, read the manuscript, concieve of a series of ideas and try out a bunch of stuff before it was clear what direction she was to take. And this whole process excludes the back and forth between marketing, editorial, the publishers, photogrpahers, designers etc.

It would be wonderful to see more of these types of clips from other designers. There is a vast amount of folks out there doing amazing photoshop manipulation and solid design work and it is almost poetic to see it come together in this fashion. On that note: More please.
