Being a huge David Sedaris fan, both of these projects were made simply for the fun of it. The main idea was to have the designs represent the author. David Sedaris is a comedic memoir writer who writes mainly about his observations and things happening to him.
The poster represents the author’s presence – as someone who is a bit quirky and tends to blend in with the background. This book in particular mostly focuses on the author’s childhood. We wanted to capture how fun and entertaining this American humorist’s stories are by pairing bright colors with a fun font family. The pattern set behind it adds a 1960s flair to represent the general time period the book is set in. Both were made in Adobe Illustrator.
