The idea of “laying down your dreams” doesn’t lend itself to beautiful imagery.

We used painterly leaves and a calm background to create a harmony that mimics the peace one finds when looking outside of oneself.
One has seen this cover design time and time before, yet the execution is so flawless in its type decisions, illustration, and its print treatments that it made it through each round. We simply couldn’t leave it out of the winning selections. – MK
