Well when there was just one I was satisfied but now there are four as the cover designer toys with 'Design elements'
This raises serious issues. Choices have to be considered, decisions must be made. Elements must be pondered and pros and cons deliberated until some fortuitous and contextually harmonic amalgam is reached .
Let me help break it down.
Black and white or sepia?
Title and author Font from 1/2/3/4?
Secondary font ie " One clowns alphabet" from one or three?
red line [I'm told it's a design element-] [ITS A RED LINE, WHAT DOES IT DO?]
Red star, yes or no?
Full photo frame? , ie 3 and 4
Or non full photo frame? ie 1 and 2
I haven't done the math, hold on....... OK done the math 14 variables,
so combinations are 14x14= 196 combinations.
I NEED ALL THE HELP I CAN GET!
If someone could explain what the red lines purpose is that would be good. What does a 'design element' do? What is it's function?
I like the full photo better than the photo as only part of the cover. What do you think?
I like the star and I like the almost unreadably curly secondary font but think that 'one clowns alphabet' is a good intriguing element that might evoke curiousity and so wonder if, even though I don't really like the, to me clunkyness of the sub font in one and two , it might serve it's function of being immediately readable and thus, 'curiousity generating' than the prettier subfont used in three and four.
that will do for now. This blog hardly ever has anyone comment so my hopes are not high but I do know people read it daily, I have a counter and everything and would very much appreciate it if I got some advice. Thanks in advance.
