Gill Chantler (Community manager / illustrator @ Briefbox) Hi Soul, thanks for submitting your submission to our book cover brief! I'm liking the strong colour palette that you've gone for here and the layout is really strong. I'm liking the sense of movement on the page, with the angle of the text. Nice work Soul. I think in order now, to really push these designs forward, it would be good to look at how the illustrative element could be integrated a bit more on the page. The textural effect that you've used in the font is awesome. Perhaps you could consider how to add this into the wave illustration? I think you could also remove the white outlines to the waves here, which would help tie things in a bit more. Overall, this is an awesome first submission to this brief. Keep going with it! If you have any initial sketches, it would be great if you could also upload them for the community to take a look at. Looking forward to seeing the next submission from yourself here as a Briefbox Pro user!! And remember, if you do choose to work on this brief, if you could submit it as a separate submission so we can review your awesome revised design!
