Role: Art Director and Designer

Goal: Book cover designs for Greek and Latin texts with commentary.

Process: I needed to create a design system that visually links a series of books in Greek and Latin. The only visual variables for the book covers are palette, thematic textures and illustrative content.

Solution: The book cover series sets itself apart visually and conceptually by avoiding photographs of Greek and Roman sculptures for thematic content. The Greek series, united by Etruscan-era papyrus backgrounds and blood-red illustrations, evokes history with a modern sensibility. 

Impact: The book series, easily identifiable on online retail sites, is popular and collectable.
