I've decided to share my process of my marathon training guide project as it progresses, since it's just for class! The first component is the cover. So, so many cover options with varying text and stock images - all in draft form. I want the cover to feel bold, so I've mostly stuck to sans-serf typefaces with clean, sturdy lines. I think one of my favorite things about design is mixing typefaces together - adding texture with italics and different weights, varying text sizes, playing with tracking...good stuff. My final design actually ended up being a combination of a few of theses - I'll share more as it all starts to come together!
