Robert Bean

Book Cover by Design workshop w/ Robert Bean

Artist Robert Bean helps participants learn how text and images work together, why typography matters, and how color affects the viewer’s impression and emotions. Come up with your own imaginary book title, then draw and/or collage your book cover’s image and walk away with your own designed book cover (from a pulp fiction style look to something more modern and streamlined). No art experience required.
