Jon Gray’s Typographical Book Covers

In my career I’ve been focusing on illustration for the last years, but coming from a much broader background in graphic & communication design I am fascinated with the whole book cover designing process and the challenges it comes with.

Creating visuals that somehow represent a whole story without going the most obvious route or being too bold and simple is a skill that results in beautiful work when it’s mastered. Jonathan Gray aka Gray 318 clearly is one of the masters in this field. His mainly typographical works are always smart, thought-through and often show a dry wit. If you are a fan of Jonathan Safran Foer you might already be very aware of Jon’s fantastic cover work.

You can see a video on youtube about the extraordinary cover design of Nineteen Eighty-Four (3rd cover shown above) here.

I fell in love with Lucie Rice’s work as soon as I saw it! A beautiful combination of both illustration and design, Lucie’s whimsical imagery is appealing to both children and adults alike. She has a special love for animals and an amazing sense of color and typography, all of which are apparent in her work. Her clients include Purina, the Grand Ole Opry, Penguin Group, and Simon & Schuster, and many more. She currently resides in Nashville, TN, with her husband and their beloved dog Lola.

Oh wow! LOVE Carson Ellis illustration. I didn’t know of her work before I saw The Wildwood Chronicles (written by her husband Colin Meloy) last year. Gorgeous book! Her use of typography and pattern within her work is superb. Her illustration style has a folklore/fairytale feel about it – imaginiative, clever and delightfully inspiring. Carson Lives in Oregon with her family and also illustrates album art for her husbands band The Decemberists. See more of Carson’s work here and the Wildwood Chronicles has its very own page here.

Illustrative Packaging :: Flour Pot Bakery

This packaging for Flour Pot Bakery by Sara Nicely grabbed our attention… oh so subtly. Simple, beautiful typography! What’s not to love?

In Sara’s words: The Flour Pot Bakery Pot strives for a healthy diet with high quality, natural ingredients and environmentally friendly practices. This identity system was designed to convey the unique and handmade qualities of the bakery. The hand-drawn type was inspired by the wiry Christmas lights arranged throughout the dining area. I chose to design a menu that could be carried home without hassle. An alternate menu for lunch is available for guests who dine in.
