The image below was the start of my cover composition without the text. It was a simple look with the light bulbs portrayed in the same medium, which you can see was changed for the final cover to stress the different mediums used in graphic design.
Overall, the purpose of my cover is to represent the message that Arntson wanted her audience to receive through her text. Her book outlined the concept of design, therefore I included the important aspects of graphics design. I chose a box to deliver the ideas to the audience with an array of colors to show that color theory plays an important role. As well as the positioning of the text on the cover, they parallel to the box from an angle to indicate the significance of placement and use of space.
