Making the Impossibly Boring Easy to Understand

Designed in Adobe Illustrator CS3; Font: Helvetica Neue; Dimensions: 7" x 9" x 1"

Taking something boring--like tidal current tables--and making it appealing is one of the most satisfying aspects of design, and I think it's fair to say that said sense of self-gratification resides entirely in the challenge. Anyhow, I drew the wave pattern several weeks ago for a design that has since faded into the ether--it happens that this was a perfect application, wherefore I ran with it.

Detailed versions of the front & back covers (and the spine) are available below. I decided to keep the back cover clean because there was no point in extending the pattern all the way.
