Wigtown Book Festival

I was recently commissioned to produce the cover for this years Wigtown Book festival brochure. The theme was focusing on the idea of Wigtown as a destination. People travel from near and far to be at the festival. Here is a mock up of the final open cover design.

These are various rough versions. At first I focused too much on my own colour palette with not another thought or research into Wigtown as a place. Overall these were way too 'tropical'.

Further roughs, addressing the colour ways but also started to look at the difference between the elements being quite fragnented in a flat space or more of a full landscape image.
