Challenges I faced while creating the book jacket include making sure that I got the correct measurements and coming up with ideas of what to design on all four sections of the book jacket. There were a lot to worry about and whether or not my designs are cohesive with the color theme and the book’s story. If I could change something about my book jacket I would add more design elements to it. I’m most proud that my book jacket had a clear color scheme and what I do have on the book jacket worked well together. From this I learned the importance of cohesiveness.
