BOOK COVER DESIGN -AUGUST 2021

It's always exciting to translate someone's vision into reality, through my love for art and design. Thanks Arini Vlotman and congratulations again on launching your book- 'The Art of Adulting: Managing & Manoeuvering Life in Your 30's. 
The book cover is a reflection of someone who is going through the challenges of daily life as a millennial and is still able to find happiness and motivation to lead a balanced life. 
It's a mix of humour, entertainment and an honest perspective. A fun read for sure!
