Home Cooking - Cookbook Cover

Course: Professional Design Practice // October 2016
Conceptualize and design fictitious cookbook cover and spine. The design must include "Home Cooking with (Your Name)".

After taking test photographs of food scenes that did not include food at all at the start of this project, I decided that it was time to try my hand and physical lettering. My direction for the category of food was mexican-inspired foods that called for brightly colored ingredients. Using tweezers, I carefully arranged bits of cayenne pepper into the word "home" and then continued to play with other spices to form a composition. After shooting the scene from overhead in a photography studio, I edited the photo in Adobe Lightroom and added the remainder of text in Adobe InDesign.
