Shannon Ansbaugh – Bucket List Safari

In Bucket List Safari: The Silver Lining of Life-threatening Illness, Shannon Ansbaugh shares how having severe health issues since an early age in life has not stopped her from achieving her dreams and fulfilling her bucket list.

Shannon’s original, handwritten bucket list and personal pictures from her adventures form the cover design.
A safari in Africa is one of her most prominent memories and items on her bucket list, and what gave the book its title.

Combining these powerful visual elements and themes became the optimal graphic solution.

To emphasize the connection between the elements, the items relevant to the book cover and title are highlighted in the list itself and supported with pictures emulating a travel scrapbook.

The typography was chosen to support the concept of adventure. At the same time, it is easy to read and adds character and uniqueness to the book cover.
