Create a book trailer. A book trailer functions like a conventional trailer for a film. However, it is intended to encourage the purchase of printed matter. Book trailers can employ design and imagery from the book itself set to time, or have original design, animation, or live-action creations visualizing the story, themes, or ideas of the book.
I chose Philip Meggs’ book History of Graphic Design. In the book trailer, I used the timeline to show how graphic design developed in different periods and how designers have made innovations in graphic design. From ancient times (15,000BC) to the present (2014), the timeline demonstrates design styles and representative works from different periods. I used the pictures in the book and the modern style to combine them into a new design to show diversity and interest in graphic design in this trailer.
