Within my lecture notes I created a book layout design, this was a initial design. I was keen to use an abstract design as Andy Warhol’s Absolut artwork inspired me to create this design for my book, with a pop art feel to the design. I gathered ideas from Pinterest and saved them on my board and also downloaded the key ideas to work from. The abstract designs reminded me of some of Saul Bass’ designs.
Mood board of ideas for book design
The cover I decided to create was abstract A and V., standing for Absolut Vodka, which is similar to the packaging design on the original bottle having the A and full stop depicted on it. The cover design drove the abstract concept. Initially, I started to create some abstract designs of a vodka bottle, cocktails and fruit.
