Design your thesis cover – from scratch to sketch
Would you like to get away from the computer every now and then? Look at your thesis in a different way and do something with your hands? Cooperate instead of working alone? Then my course might be for you.
We are going to work on your thesis design. In ten lessons I guide you from nothing to an idea and a sketch for your cover that suits you and your subject. You’ll discover what your taste is and how you can put that into words, what inspires you and how you get to the best ideas.
I’ll teach you how to look at your subject in a different manner, think creatively from words to images. What is it really about, what’s the main message? How does your subject feel, does it have a color or a flavor? I’m giving you guidelines for composition and you are going to get to work yourself.
At the end of the course you’ll have a sketch for your cover that you can finalize yourself. Or, you can show it to a designer/illustrator to do that for you. You’ll have a new view on your thesis and you know how you get the best ideas. And if you see where it’s going (a real book!) it usually gives new energy for your PhD.
Please be aware that this is NOT a drawing- or computer course. Of course we are going to draw, but in the end it’s about getting an original idea and what works for you to get there. That’s where a beautiful design starts.
