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.
Written by Keri O’Brien, the designer of Theology of Work Bible Commentary, Volume I:
Theology of Work Bible Commentary, Volume I needed to maintain and expand upon the brand established by the Theology of Work Project, as well as set the tone for the rest of the volumes within the Theology of Work Bible Commentary series. This title draws from the color and typographic palettes employed by the Theology of Work brand. Black and white imagery, showing people performing different types of “work,” serves as a backdrop. For this volume, which covers Genesis through Deuteronomy, an image of a farmer pushing a wheelbarrow was chosen, drawing on themes of beginnings and growth.
