Musicians of Oklahoma, And Their Influence Over the Years is an informational book featuring famous musicians from Oklahoma, specifically their musical influences and other musicians they have gone on to influence. It focuses on the genres of Folk, Country, Rock, and Pop. I wanted it to feel very contemporary, so I chose to use bold, sans-serif type and edited photographs to have contrasting, saturated colors. Most people have the notion that Oklahoma isn't the most hip place in the world, so my goal was to make this book look as fresh and fun as possible. And turns out, we have about a billion awesome musicians! I only featured 12 musicians, but I could have gone on forever.
