how do they do that?

March 10, 2010

speaking of Gail Carringer, the cover design for her 3rd book, “Blameless” (September 2010), is condensed into a fascinating 2 minute video, shortening 6 hours of work by Orbit Books Creative Director Lauren Panepinto.  says Panepinto:

Over 6 hours of my onscreen compositing, retouching, color correction, type obsessing, all condensed down to a slim sexy one minute 55 seconds of cover design. Trust me, no one wants to watch it in real-time…and even then I left out the not-as-riveting-onscreen stages of my cover design process, such as reading the manuscript, sifting through Alexia photoshoot outtakes, background photo research, etc.
