Book Cover Designs

One of my 2nd year projects w as to create a series of book cover designs including a cover for James and the Giant Peach which would be entered into Penguin cover design competition held annually. The 3 covers are all created using a variety of techniques from paintings to laser cut vector shapes of card.

'The Outsider' cover was created using painted images and layered together using illustrator, 'The Rough Guide to London' allowed me to focus my typography skills combined with solid vector images. Finally my entry into the penguin competition was created through vector shapes designed on illustrator and then each individual piece was laser cut out of quality card and layered up to form a staircase of differing shapes with the main tittle cut through all the layers down to a piece of mirrored card. I think it was very successful and look forward to seeing how well it does in the competition
