penguin book competition

a few weeks ago we were given a project which was to design two book covers for two penguin books. this project was also a competition where eventually once shortlisted there was a large cash prize and exhibition.

here’s my first book cover design for grimms fairytales;

my second book cover was for one flew over the cuckoos nest;

i illustrated the grimms fairytales cover, very simple and child like which is what i really wanted to try and create.
my second cover went along with the traditional penguin cover theme, originally there was a cream box around the title just like on the traditional penguin books but i was advised to try and create something a little different.

i’m pleased with both of my finals, i enjoyed this project, unfortunately nobody in my class was shortlisted which is a real shame but the competition was high! all good fun!
