Book Cover Redesigns
Graphic Design Project
Fall 2014 Intermediate Illustration Studio
The goal of this project was to redesign covers for three different book trilogies, each trilogy with a different coherent visual language and matching demographic. By reasearching various visual styles and book covers, including graphic flat colored, rendered, and historical styles, I learned to design covers with consumer appeal, unified visual styles, and to create designs marketed to the targeted audience. I chose Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials series, a selection of Beatrix Potter books, and a selection of books from Brian Jacques' Redwall series.
Projects and process.
