How do you choose the “right” front cover design?
The Brief: The IAJS had a conference in Phoenix Arizona in 2007. The IJJS journal required a front cover themed to this conference. The conference was titled: Jungian Perspectives on Rebirth & Renewal. This issue includes selected papers presented at the 2014 international IAJS conference at the Arizona State University (ASU).
The papers were full of references to Jung, Alchemy, individuation, the Phoenix and phoenix the bird rising from the ashes.
Good cover design attempts to match feeling and tone, color and theme of the event or story.
Here are some of the alternatives we explored for the cover of this issue.
