A textured racing stripe was what I had in mind when I designed this project, Totem. I was drawn to the idea of a vertical sampler, because of all of the directions you could take it.
For the cover project, I stuck with mostly a red/orange/flame vs white/cream/gray palette, but I can see many other versions that play with contrast work, color play, and/or print scale. This project is the perfect canvas for playing with new ideas to make it your own!
