Sneak Peek: resonate Cover Design
By Nancy Duarte
The rumors are true… I’ve been hard at work on another book, and I’d like to give you a sneak peek of our first draft at a cover design.
After several internal brainstorms and sketching sessions, we ended up with these concepts.
We all felt that there was something special about the word resonate being made out of dots that look like they are being magnetically pulled towards a gathering. The sketch was inspired by this stitchery I found online.
Diandra, my Creative Director felt that the dots could be people walking or running towards the gathering. It could look like an aerial shot of the Million Man March in Washington DC.
My team meticulously drew all the figures and shadows. We played with color combos and textures and ended up with this AMAZING cover.
What do you think? We’d love your feedback and comments. Stay tuned as we will be sharing more of these insights along the way.
