Motivational author and speaker Daryl Burian approached me to design the cover of his first published book, "There is more to you", a self-help, motivational and life coaching book.
The brief for this work was to capture and convey the significance of the reader themselves while providing the audience with an visual that they can engage with and relate to. The emotive settings within the colours and the composition were made to illustrate themes including isolation, confronting life challenges and overcoming them.
By generating a visual flow that leads to the typographic elements, I aimed to lead the viewer from the bottom of the page to the top, just as they would view the mountain inside the illustration, as if they were the figure standing in front of it. In doing so, this adds emphasis to the word "YOU" in the title by being placed above the mountain, as it allows the eyes of the viewer to go on a short journey.
