Design Note #1: The dramatic colors, lighting, and position of the ballerina make the reader look twice at this cover.
Design Note #2: This is a story about the author’s career as a ballerina but also about her journey of motherhood. I conveyed this by adding a second subtitle but kept it separate from the first subtitle via a different font and spacing.
Design Note #3: Choosing a font for the title was tricky. We finally decided on a soft, feminine script that is also easy to read.
Design Note #4: I went with a warmer color palette for the new cover, especially because of the thematic importance of the colors red and blue in the memoir.
