Book Cover design

OBJECTIVE/

This project required students to design three book covers, which have a cohesive look and therefore, work as a set. Students were asked to use the only type, color and illustration to design the book covers with a typographic approach.

 

 

APPROACH/

I chose three movie stories that tell the social phenomena of different countries at different times. Then, I designed a series of book covers based on the movies. I combined the type and illustrations to show the critical elements in the stories, namely, a rose in ‘If You Are The One’, wall in ‘Dwelling Narrowness’’, and perfume in ‘Perfume’. Meanwhile, I unified the graphic elements and primary colors of book covers to create a cohesive look.
