TEXAS TECH UNIVERSITY PRESS
A history of the Texas coast told through the bird species that inhabit it.
Most of the beauty of this cover derives from the illustration drawn by Linda M. Feltner, a talented nature and wildlife illustrator. My strongest contribution is the typeface selection. The typeface on the cover - and in the interior - is Cormorant Garamond. Designed by Christian Thalmann of Catharsis Fonts, Cormorant Garamond is a refined, modern iteration of the Garamond heritage that is meant to suit both large-scale and small-scale usage. The name drew me to this typeface and fits perfectly with the theme of this book. As an additional bonus, the default heart in this typeface is a glyph of a small cormorant that the author was more than happy to find used as ornamentation in the book.
For this title I designed the full jacket and interior (with the help of Linda's illustrations) as well as marketing materials including a postcard and a web banner in both desktop and mobile sizes.
