Local Living cover by Tippi Thole for The Washington Post

How to do spring break smart

I wanted to give this cover a nostalgic, literary feel since many of the writer’s ideas had to do with reading, getting back to nature and enjoying the simple things in life. After designing the headline, I felt like the page needed a touch of whimsy so I went about looking for photos of children flying kites. When I found this stock illustration of a boy flying a kite, I knew it was perfect. It had exactly the feel I wanted. I redrew the string of the kite to frame the headline and added a blue background color to the page to tie it all together.
