Pantone Book Cover Redesign
In this project, I was challenged to redesign the cover for the Pantone book by more non-traditional means. One thing that stood out to me the most about the Pantone color system is the universal nature of it, and its worldwide application.
I wanted to connect this worldwide notion with an array of colors, which in the end I decided was best done by using climate zones. I painted bands of color corresponding to temperature regions across the continents, and used layered paper to portray depth and terrain. With each layer I tinted the colors so that when scanned and viewed in 2D, the depth would still be apparent.
By cropping the continents in closer, the composition became more visually appealing and slightly less recognizeable (which I wanted). This also opened up the possibility of a series, in which designers across the globe could by the Pantone book which featured their region on the cover.
