It’s not just what design looks like, but what it says. In this 66-minute class, acclaimed cover designer Peter Mendelsund shares his process for creating a book jacket that conveys the author’s vision, sells the book, and pushes you as an artist.
Learn how to read as a graphic designer, iterate with imagination, and break the “rules” to make your message stand out. Nine video lessons follow Peter as he designs a Skillshare-exclusive cover for Wordsworth’s “I Wandered as a Cloud,” and a detailed project guide helps you create a cover of your own.
This smart, inspiring class is a must-take for graphic designers, illustrators, and everyone who loves to hold a book in their hands.
