HISPANIC STUDIES / SPORTS
TEXAS TECH UNIVERSITY PRESS
Broadening and deepening our understanding of sport and community.
For this cover I wanted to do something that was fun and colorful, but also related in some way to Latin culture. These hanging decorations, papel picados, were something that I found related to Latin celebration. I made them sport specific to match this particular title. I've included below a cover that was not chosen but also is something that relates to Latin culture: a Mexican blanket with sports imagery "sewn" into it.
The typeface on the final cover is Van Condensed Pro Bold and was chosen because it was designed by someone Latin - Ricardo Santos, who is Portuguese.
The interior typeface is Athleas, which is also designed by someone Latin - Veronika Burian and Jose Scaglione.
For this title I designed the full cover and interior. Also included here is a cover that was not chosen.
An unchosen cover featuring a Mexican blanket with sports imagery. While this typeface doesn't have any direct Latin connections, I thought it fit well with this concept because it was bold but also a little bit textured.
