Girl, Woman, Other
by Bernardine Evaristo - Adult Fiction
Create a book cover that illustrates the book
Create the cover based on the UAL criteria: Enquiry / Knowledge / Process / Communication / Realisation
Consider how you might differ from previous Penguin designs
Offer something original and different to the publication
Things to consider:
Role or fiction of a cover
-> Entice someone to read the book
-> Don’t give everything away
Give your interpretation with limited visual information
-> Allowing imagination from potential readers
Consider how you handle text & titles. Are you employing type or lettering?
How are the colour choices promoting the idea of the book?
Using UAL criteria you should work professionally to design a book cover that interprets the text of the book through your own research & imagination.
Read / listen to the book
