Design Objective

Design Statement

Choose an author and design a box set of three book covers for the chosen author. The set must have a consistent and modern style. Along with the set, the box cover must also be designed keeping in the style of the book covers.

I chose the author George Orwell and his classic books series including: Animal Farm, Coming Up For Air, and 1984. The limited color palette of red, black, and white were utilized to remain consistent with the vintage design styles of George Orwell novels. The front covers are type-driven and feature a minimalist design. This gives the composition a modern, pleasing look. Each book features a symbol from the storyline that is graphically reduced which serves to give hints about the each book’s subject in order to pique the reader’s interest.
