The Smashing Mobile Book


I was recently commissioned to design the book cover and a series of internal full page illustrations for the upcoming The Mobile Book by Smashing Magazine.

I created a series of abstract interpretations of each section of the book. I wanted to do something different, something that you wouldn’t expect. It seemed far too obvious to illustrate mobile phones and responsive websites. I had a few wobbles in the process of creating these illustrations but I’m glad I stuck to my guns as I’m super pleased with the outcome.

You can pre-order The Mobile Book, now.

Would love to hear what you think!

    I think they’re great. I really like the fabric texture in the background (I think I also saw it in another of your websites)

    Love the use of texture in the background, and the soft colours. Nice job.
