For the cover of the former Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Canada Beverley McLachlin’s memoir we wanted to create a type only cover that would appeal to a young, feminist audience yet still look distinguished. We decided on a black, cream and red colour palette that would evoke patriotism. A strong, bold serif font allowed the title and author name to pop and red accents helped create dimension to the design. Winner of the Shaughnessy Cohen Prize for Political Writing.
