To Catch A Storm is the first novel written by Warren Slingsby, who asked us to create an eye catching cover that would stand out in digital stores and look great on a bookshelf. The book’s tone was described as a thrilling romp around various cities in Europe, the stolen art world — all wrapped up in a feeling of a classic ‘Hitchcock’ movie.
For the cover design we created a dynamic type-treatment that hinted at the thrill and chase of the narrative. A Moiré pattern depicting the ocean, a painting and an anchor also hint at the story, but importantly gives the cover a feeling of mystery when viewed at smaller sizes in digital stores.
We also created a limited edition screen-printed poster to celebrate the launch of the book, which was expertly hand printed by Jonny Akers.
You can grab a copy of the book from Warren’s Amazon Author page.
