I took the pictures below with my camera from the pdf document the designer sent me. My picture taking ability is not the best, but I wanted to get your opinion. Overall, I like both of them about the same. I like the look of concept one the best, although I like the title and author name of concept two better.
WHICH ONE WOULD YOU CHOOSE?
For concept 1, the designer used an image with a series of mirrors as the main image. On the mirrors, he placed alternate images of the boy and girl at different angles to give the illusion of a house of mirrors. He wanted the cover to be very intriguing and interesting. For the title treatment he used an interesting serif font that he felt has a very new age techno feel and placed it on the mirrors. For a more of an interesting edge, he gave the title an illusion that it is distorted over the mirrors as well.
For concept 2, the designer wanted the image to be more abstract to have the viewer try and come up with their own interpretation. He subtly placed images of the boy and girl on the cover, but very screened back so that they would not draw too much attention.
PLEASE LEAVE ME A COMMENT. I APPRECIATE YOUR OPINION.
