The Birth of a Book Cover Concept
November 24 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm$60
Translate words into visual concepts in the making of book covers with Xavier Comas.
1. Introduction and sharing about the creative process to build a book cover concept using books designed by Coverkitchen as case-studies.
2. Group exercise that focuses on brainstorming techniques to translate words into visual concepts using a brief from an actual project assignment at Coverkitchen. Participants will read the brief individually and will analyse it together. Following, they will engage in a group session to brainstorm and interact with each other together with trainer, recording the flow and ramifications of the process.
3. Workshop will conclude with the definition of 3 cover concept proposals and the group will assess them.
There is no need to design the final cover, only a quick draft of the cover concept and composition. Participants may bring laptops, tablets or smartphones to research the book’s theme, source images or sketch ideas.
Participants will acquire or hone their skills to work as a team translating literature into visual concepts.
