Pea Alexis is a hand formed typeface. Its sharpness of the strokes gives this typeface an aggressive personality. The split in the word catcher was applied to achieve forceful effect. I felt that the Authors name was to have more of a uniformed effect. This was achieved with Minion Pro in uppercase being a serif typeface it's strong appearance with different stroke paths. It was important to choose the right image, which would unite with the typeface to achieve an aggressive effect.
Jane Austen typeface is a script font with an organic character of it's own. Its flowing lines running into each letter gives the effect of being passive. The rule of thirds was applied to this cover with the Title and image. The image has soft undertones to create peacefulness to the overall cover. New Gothic MT reg was used for the Authors name. The softness of this San Serif united nicely with the Script typeface. The duck in the pond is an iconic feature of the storyline to The Catcher in the Rye.
Retro captures colour and image in a harmonious way. The Wonderful World of Retro font is more a display typeface with its elaborate strokes give s this typeface it personality. It suited the retro style and came together well the image. The retro red hunters hat created hierarchy, which also is an iconic symbol in the novel.
Colorlines is a typeface designed by Antongride. Its unique tubular form gives a futuristic character that adapts to the cover quite well. The image was produced using a Photoshop tutorial. Together with Colorlines the unity of 2 styles creates a futuristic cover.
Once again Myriad was chosen as the typeface as its strong strokes works well with the treatment that was applied to create a shattered effect. This gave the title movement that unites the style to the Title. It was important to keep the imagery simple so it didn't detract from the style of the typeface focal point.
