Book Series Jacket Design

MA Book Design Project
130×200mm
2017
The purpose of this project was to explore book series jacket design and specification. We were encouraged to explore a wide variety of design solutions that called on images, materials, print techiques, binding, market research and typographic detail.

My series was created from singular books in existence on the theory of aesthetics. I then grouped these into a series design that aimed to invert the relationship of the text’s content/meaning and the aesthetics of the cover design.

The final designs are a result of many experiments and testing around typographic forms, print techniques, graphic representation and colour theory.
