music matters logo and series design
I was approached by Art Director Dustin Kilgore at The University of Texas Press to design a book cover series and accompanying logo for a project that just landed on their desk (and was due to print in just a few weeks). The series, Music Matters, is a collection of books arguing the importance of individual bands and musicians, each written by noteworthy writers. The goal of the project was to create eye-catching book covers that could easily fit different names and artists with the addition of each new book.
One of the challenges of the series design was to not exclude any diehard fans of a specific musician from buying just one book from the series. Each book would need to be able to stand on its own as an attractive cover design.
