I’m super excited to show you the omnibus cover of Brent Weeks’ Night Angel Trilogy. I was so excited when I found out I was working on this project. We wanted to repackage this series in a way that communicates epic adventure but also looks badass on a coffee table: an element of sophistication and collectability.
We ultimately decided to make the cover black with the pattern blind spot in the background, the Night Angel title and Brent’s name in foil and the sword front and center. The sword was the biggest challenge because we had to bring something to life that was only described in the text. After looking at all of our options, including the possibility of having someone make a Curoch, we finally decided that a photographic illustration gave us the most flexibility when it came to modifying and editing the image. final.
I had a blast working on this project. Every time I get to research weapons, it makes me a very happy designer. After a bunch of tweaking and tweaking we came up with what you see in the final design.
