For my portfolio project, I have chosen to base it off a strong passion of mine which is Marvel, created by Stan-Lee. His recent death inspired me to design a book in celebration of his work, specifically focusing on his favourite piece, Spider-Man. The concept in the design of this book uses a contemporary style with brighter colours, while staying harmonious to the classic Marvel comic designs.
The title of the book ‘The man behind the mask’, plays a huge role in the physical design of the cover. I have designed a double exposure effect which allows you to see Spider-Man through red acetate, and Stan-Lee through the blue.
