Jessica Helfand has a new book coming out and invited a few friends to design different covers for it. I spent Sunday morning putting something quickly together for her that is “good enough” to deploy.
What is “good enough”?
- Maps to constraints of time and other requirements. Time being the most important constraint.
- Represents a thoughtful line that might make sense. Some kinds of design are meant to be puzzles.
- Utilizes signature methods that reinforce a brand. I’ve always made everything by hand (and handtyped code).
- Brings satisfactory goodwill to those who you respect. I felt that as a composition it honored Jessica’s request.
