Masterclass alert: Book Cover Design with David Pearson
If you are lucky enough to be in East Essex, join David Pearson for a two-day masterclass at the Ditchling Museum of Art + Craft.
In the masterclass "you will produce your own book covers, from initial roughs through to finished 3D mockups (and everything in-between)."
As noted materials will be supplied but attendees are encouraged to bring along their own art materials and/or a laptop computer (although neither is essential).
David Pearson is an award-winning book designer with 20 years of publishing industry experience.
Pearson graduated from Central Saint Martins in 2002 before working for Penguin Books as a text designer and later, a cover designer. He left to establish his own studio in 2007, which specialises in print design where typography is the principle form of expression.
David has been listed as one of Britain’s Top 50 Designers by the Guardian, named by Debrett’s as one of Britain’s 500 most influential people and was appointed Royal Designer for Industry in 2015.
This year he is nominated for Designer of the Year by The British Book Awards.
