book cover design

for Brad Aaron Modlin + Southeast Missouri State University Press

 

About the project: The process for developing the cover for this book was very expansive; there is so much richness and depth to his work that we explored many possibilities before settling on the final. The bright yellow of the cover feels cheerful, but combined with the dark and deflated balloon at the bottom of the cover can also give a sense of anxiety. 

Nikkita was incredibly in tune with what I needed—She really took the time to absorb what I had written in my initial questionnaire so that as we moved along she was right on target with the fuzzy image I had in my head of what I wanted. She took that fuzzy image in my head and turned it into a reality that far exceeded my expectations of what I was going to be able to do.
