The Fight Book Cover Design
Just published ‘The Fight’ a novel by Luke Wordley.
Profile Design were asked to design the cover for this exciting fist novel by Hampshire author Luke Wordley, Profile Design were also commissioned to produce professional photography and supplied the model. Profile designed the cover with a very mono, gritty feel to reflect the story of this young fighter. Part of the process involved taking brand new boxing wrist and hand wraps and dripping tea on them and dragging them along the pavement outside the studio to create that worn appearance. Alex the photographer created a range of amazing and gritty images in a spare room using only an old black blanket as a backdrop and a couple off office spotlights..this was a job on a shoestring budget.The book has had excellent reviews so far and we look forward to working with Luke on his next project.
