Concept, illustration, book design & layout

Design according to the terms of Donders Institute

Background information:
Rob Gons wanted all the important elements from his dissertation to be represented on the cover. That is why in the cover illustration, all the different elements are united. The head- illustration is based on a photo I took myself. A part of the abstract illustration of the brain visualises a human figure lying down.
Rob also likes the colors white, gray and silver, and prefers a ‘clean’ style. That’s why I opted for the abstract illustration style and clean layout for this dissertation design. Also I chose for a UV-varnish that makes the silver-colored ink shine beautifully.
