SCAD MOME Grad School Recap & Work (c)

I’m sure by now most of you have read The Blind Side or at least seen the movie (Sandra Bullock did win an Oscar for it!). Well, what Michael Lewis doesn’t know is that this book actually got me reading again. I picked it up in the airport one day ONLY because it had a football player on the front and God knows how much I love football! It took a few months for me to actually pick it up and read it, but when I did, I flew threw it! I loved it! I think I’ve read almost every Michael Lewis book since then, even the ones about money–which of course, having none of that, I don’t understand…

The point here is that The Blind Side had such an impact on me that it actually inspired this project for SCAD, whose project parameters were to design a book jacket. The jacket is blind embossed on the front and de-bossed on the back. Really quite amazing to hold in  your hand. Luckily, the company I was working for at the time (MSG) had amazing relationships with printers and they actually were kind enough to create the plates and print about 50 samples for me!


I actually have my version of the book jacket around my copy of the book on my shelf.
