I especially loved all the cool covers! So many talented people!!!!

We have Holly here today to comment on the top 5 Recreate A Cover Images!


First off, I have to say how incredibly impressed I was with *all* of the entries. There is some real talent out there—maybe you should think about graphic designs as a career! Thanks to every one of you who entered your beautiful recreated covers. I am in awe. And I’m gushing over the gorgeousness of these top five!

I really loved how this one captured the sweetness and romance, with the symbol of hope behind the title script. Actually, it reminds me a little bit of some images in the TELL ME A SECRET trailer, coming soon! I also thought the color gradation was beautiful.

Such gorgeous, saturated colors in this one, and it hints at some of the darker emotions in the story. The script is really pretty, too, and gold is a great choice to contrast with the violet in the background. Lovely.


The color gradations in this one are so eye-catching and glowy, and the birds give it a hopeful feeling. Such a heartbreaking image of a pregnant girl holding a teddy bear. It reminds me a little of the original cover of Rachel Cohn’s Gingerbread.



This one is so striking and high contrast – great use of fonts to suggest the idea of the story, definitely a cool idea and very unique. Plus the model has the most flawless skin ever. I love using type to create images. Great job!



I really like the tagline this entry included: One girl. One boy. One secret. It looks very innocent and Sarah Dessen-y with the girl holding the daisies. It’s also a cool design element to bring in the contrast band and the sepia tones. Very nice!

Wow.
They all looks flipping fantastic!
I really wish I had the talent to do that, though, in reality, something mundane as uploading pictures is a struggle for me. ;)
Awesome entries!
Love, Hannah
