Mumbai as a City was completely unknown to me before doing some research. I had only a few points to begin exploring but I began to search for images of these tourist spots or destinations.
Looking at these images and others a couple things stood out to me about the city. Firstly the sandy colour of buildings, secondly the way greenery interrupted buildings. Thirdly how bright colours were added into the landscape by the people, through bright clothing, food stalls. I wanted to try and reflect those colours in my cover. Here’s the result:
I wanted to try different positions for the text and felt the first text placement was perhaps a little too bold. I think I prefer the second placement as it’s still visible but doesn’t become the focal point of the cover. The cover was created in Illustrator rather than Photoshop.
