Spot 12 redesigned book cover

Spot 12 Redesign
The independent publishing house Raincloud Press asked me to redesign a book cover for author Jenny Jaeckel. The first time around I did not have creative control and both author and I agreed years ago that if we could ever get the chance for a re-do, we would do things different. Six years later, it actually happened and this is the result.

Out of The Ashes
I designed the book cover on the left. I enjoyed the process but I also learned so much from the experience. The publisher decided to go another direction and did the work in-house. You can see the final cover on the right.
