DRAFT COVER 1:
— I really like the dynamism of the diagonals in the draft cover; there's a lot of energy and it's a little off-balance, which is great.
— The colors are also really beautiful, I particularly like the slight lilac of the background.
TEXT / TYPOGRAPHY:
— Typography on the half-jacket needs to have some more structured arrangement. Ideally for me it's all left justified or centered. I'd like the Bloomsbury name to be in line with the rest of the text.
— If we don't go with the half-jacket, text could be incorporated into the shape, at angles or something.
— Typography could be smaller on half-jacket.
ROTTEN is a six-part documentary series breaking down the origins of six different products. It features gripping in-person investigative shots that make viewers uncomfortable and build drama. In TCWNL we can't forget the need for confrontational footage. (ZERO POINT ZERO / NETFLIX)
DIRTY MONEY is a series exploring greed and corporate scams in American life. It features talking-head interviews as well as dramatic spins through documents and diagrams. It also incorporates archival footage in a strong way. (ALEX GIBNEY / NETFLIX)
FOLLOW THIS is BuzzFeed's newsroom series on Netflix. Each episode follows one particular journalist as they report out a story. What's interesting about it is how they use graphics to enliven the more static shots of the journalists, as seen here. It combines a single narrator with visual storytelling. (BUZZFEED / NETFLIX)
