Everything is designed. Few things are designed well. — Brian Reed

MEXICO ONE

Having just returned from Mexico, I’d like to share some photos which will help me explain my ideas about design and why it matters. This is the first of what I hope will be many posts exploring the importance of design…

I may be the one person on the planet who hasn’t devoured Steig Larsson’s “Tattoo trilogy” but if you CAN tell a book by it’s cover, I’ll surely read it in Spanish if I ever get around to it.

Part photo, part illustration, part Photoshop construct, this remarkable cover captures the chilly, moody life of strung-out punk heroine, Lisbeth Salander who – by now – is the world’s most famous girl with a dragon tattoo.

As if the book needed any more help to create sales… but no doubt this cover was important early on in attracting an audience. Remarkable!
