Best Day Hikes
The book cover for "Best Day Hikes in the Catskills & Hudson Valley: Four-season Guide to 60 of the Best Trails from New York City to Albany" by Peter Kick is designed in three distinct styles to appeal to different demographics. The design for architects draws inspiration from architectural lines, incorporating a topography map to bridge the connection between architectural elements and the natural environment. Targeting dancers, the cover highlights the parallels between dance footwork and hiking footsteps, with a gradient background symbolizing the transition from sky to landscape. Lastly, the cover for journalists captures the dynamic and spontaneous nature of their work, portraying a sense of urgency with colors reminiscent of loose-leaf paper.
