Maker Pro Book Cover
This great book of essays by beginning and pro makers was in need of a cover. The brief required that I somehow convey the breadth of experience levels represented within the book, while focusing on "beginnings." I styled and shot tools and materials reminiscent of the making process and used a woodburner to inscribe a very rough-hewn "MAKER" in caps. I then composited the typography after some minor retouching.
