Craig Settles: Graphics

About the client: Craig Settles helps public, private, & nonprofit organizations get better, faster broadband through consulting services, on-site training, workshops, & authoring books, reports, & articles.

The need: The client asked us to design the book cover for his Building the Gigabit City book, as well as for Building the Gigabit City, Volume 2 which he published several years later. He wanted both covers to stand out from standard technical books.

Our work: We first gathered information from the client to specify the desired look and feel for the covers. Given that the client’s work involves fighting to help rural and urban communities have better broadband, concepts included: Dick Tracy, hero, and broadband technology. We researched, illustrated the icon for the book title, and then designed the covers.
