Design Rationale

This series was designed to utilise the technique of colour overprinting. Created originally by hand using translucent colour gels, the images were later rendered digitally and printed in solid areas of Pantone colour. Initially intended to be produced on the textured stock and in the format of the firstly printed title ‘These Are The Names’ (Blue, Yellow, Black) the production specifications later changed due to cost. Each design features the initials of the author (TW) supported by one additional motif. These are contemporary novels, reflected in the clean areas of pure colour, minimised designs and lightweight, sans serif typography.
