CZD Crosswords

Book cover design

Back to gallery

When the author approached me to design the cover of his new book, a beginners guide  to cryptic crosswords he had a very open mind as to how the design would look.

After looking at cover designs of similar books the one thing that stood out was how dull most of them were with predictable black and white crossword designs.

So as departure from the expected I went for a slightly more abstracted design that was very bright and vibrant to help really catch the readers eye.

About me /

I'm fascinated by all forms of visual communication from typography and illustration to photography and web design.

When I'm not pushing pixels I can be found avidly following nearly every type of motorcycle racing.

Inspiration /

Inspiration arrives from so many different places, from a conversation with friends to a piece of junk mail that comes through the door!

As designers we're never truly off duty and happily spend our lives looking and absorbing everything around us.
