kind of blue

objective  |  Find a poorly designed book that lives out in the world. Using the content within, including pictures and copy, redesign the book interior pages, as well as the cover.

strategy  |  I was immediately drawn to the book, which paid tribute to Miles Davis, written by those who knew him best. Sadly the book was poorly designed, and did not capture the essence of the person or music created in such an incredibly influential genre and time. I drew upon the brass color tones of the instruments that create blues music as inspiration, which created a beautiful contrast with the black and white photography. A sampling of the book was recreated to demonstrate the overall book design.
