Project: Journal Covers

Client: Compendium

Role: Design / Illustration

This series is from a cover study done for one of many journals in a series produced by Compendium, a Seattle-based publisher.

The theme was “optimism” and the desired look was one of nostalgia, with a nod towards the happy-go-lucky attitude found in 1950s advertising. Distress was added to the illustrations and custom type to add to the authenticity of the designs.
