BA Graphic Design second year project on book cover designs for Penguin Design House Awards
Another brief that focused on book cover design, only this time I had to pick two existing books to create new covers for. One of the choices was Adult fiction book ‘Animal Farm’ by George Orwell and the other Adult non-fiction book ‘A Bried History of Time’ by Stephen Hawking.
Two books with two completely different topics, and as a result I wanted to create a similar approach to deliver complete design. The ‘Animal Farm’ cover focuses on simplicity and straigt forward explanation of the main characters the story is about.
‘A Brief History of Time’ cover included a photograph of painted background. This way I wanted to create an illusion of what the topic is that the book tries to explain. Involving something that was physically made and applied to digital format.
