Why Men Love Bitches

July 31, 2011 Leave a comment

I saw this book while standing in the check out line, Why Men Love Bitches (by Sherry Argov).  This stood out from the rest of the books that were on the shelf. I have had little experience in the book design/ cover design. I guess cover designs really depend on the subject matter and genre. But this was eye catching  because of the title and that the word “Bitches” captures the essence of being a bitch and also that it is very simple.  I really like the simplicity and the contrast. There is order for “Why Men Love” – seems really straight forward and  clean and polished and then you have the word “Bitches” in read lipstick, (a script font) there is an added unique personal touch.  This is a good example of simplicity goes a long way and the attention to the small detail really makes a big difference.

Inch / Ruler

This was funny to come across in the store. This type design uses more than 2 fonts (rule of thumb – most designers do not use more that 2 different fonts within a design) and fonts portray the emphasis of the word. This witty saying may or may not be true but who does want to run an idea when they have the extra confidence boost. The pink box confines the rhythm of the words and is a pop of color – that seems to geared towards woman.

A Sign to Stop Smoking

If you wanted a sign, you got now… This was really funny to see. This tombstone design (everything is centered) had emphasis on the main point and ended on a  light note, literally the font is  a lighter weight than the rest of the saying.  It is simple adn straight to the point.
