Competition Brief: John Smith’s Bookshop

To start getting the ball rolling on the design for this competition, I first started designing a background pattern which the main design would sit in front of. Since i was basing my design around music, I didn’t want to make a pattern that was too distracting so i started playing around with shapes.

After much thought and testing, i finally came up with a pattern that i was comfortable with and would be subtle in the background.

To go along with my music concept, i had decided to also design the notebook with rough qualities especially since notebooks are used to scribble and doodle down notes and drawings, i thought why not show this on the cover? overtime a notebook will have scratches, bends and marks. Why not add some of these to the background as part of the design?

At this stage i had my background finished and ready, but i still needed to add my main concept and begin sketching out ideas on how to fill the remaining space.
