Design Rationale

Timmy the Ticked-Off Pony was such fun to design. A fresh white cover with a simple black and neon Pantone colour palette creates a strong series look that pops in a saturated market. An energetic and playful font combination reflects the character of Timmy, complements the illustration style and hints at the humour and chaos within. These elements continue inside to create a dynamic, comic-style landscape that roars with energy and excitement. Speech bubbles, dialogue lines, pull-out words and shades of bright pantone splash across the pages to create a fun and exciting package for young readers.
