ASSIGNMENT: Designing a cover for a cookbook and typesetting three spreads with three recipes



Genre: Cooking | Execution time: 6 hours | Softwares: Quark Xpress, Adobe Photoshop | Paperback

In this assignment, we were asked to design a cover for a cookbook and the layout for three spreads containing three recipes. I decided to give the cook book a retro look with a fusion of vibrant colours. The challenge was to make every page of the cookbook look exciting, provoking the reader to flip pages and engage into it. I decided to play with numerous images and make it a fun and happy book using collages with different kitchen equipments. I then pulled out certain elements from the collages onto the cover to give a sneak peek of what one should expect inside. This was my favourite assignment as it gave me the liberty to go creative and have fun with colours and images.
