Seraphim: Vampire Saga Book Cover Series

This is some older illustration work that I have enjoyed doing for author Sandra Baumgärtner.

Since I work on Book 4 right now, the series is still going and therefore relevant to me.
I hope the breakdown of the process below and the coherence of the visual style throughout the series blows away any doubt you might have in hiring a professional illustrator for your next book cover project ;)

My work involved doing the conceptional aspect, the typography, the pre-press design work, wrap around layout, bookmark designs, we-bbanner design, businesscard design and some other promotional work related to the book art.

The interesting thing about this project is that the author wanted to show local points of interests in the background because that is also where the story take place; in a local environment that the reader knows. In book 1 the background is based on an entrance to the "Kaiserthermen" a roman thermal bath ruin in Trier, the oldest city of Germany and also my hometown ;)
