it’s always good to see your work (and name) in print, but especially when it’s on the cover of something, so exciting! i was commissioned late last year to do a cover for ‘bulletin’, the magazine for the royal college of speech and language therapists.
as i’ve never done a cover before (well, one time years ago i entered and won a competition for a local magazine for a front cover design, but that wasn’t paid) it was naturally quite daunting initially. once i’d gotten over that, and gotten on with it, it was pretty much like making any other piece of work. like most creatives i know, i still have that natural fear of failure – but most times that actually spurs me on to make my work better. sometimes you need that push!
i did three rough designs, of which this was the third and chosen one. it was actually the one i like the best too, which is always nice! what do you think of it?
if you’d like to commission a pattern or collage from me, for personal use, licensing or for a publication (or anything else), you can contact me via email.
