Book Covers

This was a brief set by Penguin Design Awards. The aim of the brief was to design two book covers (Penguin and Puffin). The books chosen were ‘One Hundred Years of Solitude’ and 'James and the Giant Peach'.

The idea behind my design for the penguin book was to represent the seven different islands and the idea of ongoing time. The stopwatches are almost like clogs that go round and round watching time pass by, just like in the book.

The idea behind my design for the puffin book was that beyond the barrier there was a whole new world awaiting him and the reader. I also wanted my design to look as though you were looking into the book and to find this magical world you have to go through the book and read it.
