It was a pleasure working with author Chris Clews on his book "What 80s Pop Culture Teaches Us About Today's Workplace". For the cover we wanted to show the blending of 80s nostalgia with the business cliches of today's workplace. The old-school notebook and binder covered in 80s stickers creates a nice contrast with the modern laptop and cell phone. For each chapter we wanted to show a ballpoint pen doodle related to a key scene in the film, (much like we all used to draw in the margins of our notebooks) and merge them with a modern icon to bring the two eras together.

My role in this project included the photography for the cover, the individual decal design, icon illustration, cover design, and paperback and kindle layouts. I look forward to working together on volume 2 (or should I say "Mix Tape #2").

If you enjoy 80s pop culture and movies like The Breakfast Club, Ferris Bueller, The Goonies, Planes, Trains and Automobiles, and E.T., please consider grabbing a copy of this awesome book on Amazon in paperback or Kindle.

Thanks for visiting!
