The Accidental Executive Cover Design: Explained

In this special series, we are releasing the cover designers’ exclusive musings on their creations. In hearing their thoughts, we hope the depth and creativity behind the covers bursts forth, bringing a new light to the face of Hendrickson’s books.

The Accidental Executive

Written by Karol Bailey, the cover designer of The Accidental Executive:

The Accidental Executive contains business and faith lessons from the life of Joseph. The foreshortening of the skyscraper creates the illusion of a pyramid which suggests a modern perspective on the business lessons learned during Joseph’s time in Egypt. A sleek and sophisticated color palette and the sharp serifs of the Trajan Pro typeface support the executive appearance of the cover.
