Not as easy as it looks!

I had an assignment that required me to make a book cover for a biography of a graphic designer of my choice. This led me to discover Noma Bar. He is a genius minimalist with amazing work. His designs are basically the definition of minimalism. He conveys a concept or an idea with as little information as possible. For my book cover design I tried to make my own version of one of his famous image within an image designs. It was then that I realized how incredibly difficult it is to do that. Noma Bar makes it look easy however, with the numerous designs he has come up with. Defeated, I decided to make a book cover with a compilation of his designs, which was the only way a cover I designed myself could do him justice. He has made designs on a variety of subjects from political and controversial to portraiture and more. Check out some of his designs at:
