Penguin Book Cover Design

As a part of my Uni work I have been designing a book cover for the Student Design Awards at Penguin books. I was most interested in the Adult Fiction book, To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee so I decided to go with my gut instinct. I had read the book 4 years ago and absolutely loved it. The contrast between the light-hearted child’s voice and the harsh reality of the times makes for an interesting and emotional read. My intention was to produce a cover that hinted at the negative and dark aspects of the book, in previous editions it had been depicted as a subtle, feminine, childlike way that hid the significance of the book. I wanted to make a change.
