Actually probably the most involved thing I have ever done in Photoshop.
I have no idea what I’m doing with typography! I wanted a sort of quiet, minimal, sophisticated look. Ah. I don’t know. About the white, either. If I have time to prod it tomorrow, I will, but at least I have a finished example! And, if nothing else, I made friends(ish) with the pen tool.
We were given an invented book title and author name (all previous Fal students!) but had to come up with ideas about theme/content ourselves. I went on a Nausicaa (the Crypt)/Millennium Seed Bank bent (although I think the MSB is way more positive than the Crypt), so it’s literary fiction set in the future, about the preservation of plant species against climate change. (I would read a book about that!) So the greenhouse (see what I did there?) is supposed to look a bit like an ark.
The plant forms are all sort of inspired by origami designs. And the textures are all handmade papers I scanned.
