This is a project for the Photoshop course of the 1st semester at Humber College. For this project, I had to research and choose a book and then redesign its cover, spine, and back. I chose "The Darkness", a thriller by Ragnar Johansson.
The project required to perform research on book covers and authors. I had to choose a book that would inspire me to design an appropriate cover. "The Darkness" is a thriller so I had to create a dark mysterious cover. I chose a woman's profile angle picture with a clipping mask of misty dark forests, inspired by the Russian woman mentioned in the story and the Nordic Noir aesthetic. Furthermore, I had to create the logo and brand name of a fictional Publishing company to add to the book cover, to contribute to the overall realism. I created the logo of a company named Pegasus Books.
