The Outsiders – Puffin Design Award

Puffin design award

Book cover design for the teenage classic ‘The Outsiders’, aimed at bringing the book to a new generation of reader. My response is based almost entirely as a hand drawn approach. For the cover I focused on the themes of death and innocence through the portrayal of crows and a jumbled up typeface, and I also tried to make the cover look aged through staining the background.

What a Carve Up – Penguin Design Award

Penguin design award

My approach for this project looked at family trees and how this could be reflected as a book cover design. Looking at the work of design studio Karlssonwilker, I decided that a digitalised family tree, rather than a hand drawn family tree, would be the best solution. From the initial white background cover, I managed to tweak the design to produce six variations of the book cover.
