One of the assignments for my Journalism 456 class, The Creative Strategist, is to keep up with an idea book. An idea book is a way to unleash your inner creativity by drawing your thoughts and inspirations. For my cover, I decided to use a washi paper that I found at the University of Oregon Duck Store. I instantly fell in love with the color and the design and knew I had to use it. I especially love the gold detailing and interesting use of the rectangular shapes. The cover is the first thing people see when looking at a book. The cover is the segway into the rest of my idea book so I wanted to make it special and stand out from the others. As the title, I used my logo with my initials and made it my own.
