Buying God – Consumerism & Theology by Eve Poole

As part of our ongoing work producing covers for the publisher SCM Press, we created this design for God For Sale, a book by the popular author, academic writer, speaker and activist Eve Poole.

The brief was to give the book some of the wit and lightness of touch of the author’s writings and we looked at several different styles for the cover before settling on the final design which uses crisp modern typography and strong vibrant colours. The use of the stylised handwritten font purposefully mirrors current trends in high street shop front signage whilst the style was chosen to be a deliberate contrast to other books of the same theme.
