Final design for ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’.

I chose this live brief due to the immediate interest in genre and knew it would be a challenge to take on such iconic books. I also wanted to learn more about designing a book cover such as formats, typography and requirements clients may ask. I made many versions of imagery by experimenting with colour, positioning and design. The cover is simple but to the point. I feel as though they bring something different to what’s been used before.

I’ve allowed myself to be more critical of my work, telling myself what doesn’t work and/or what wouldn’t grab the attention of the audience no matter how much I liked it myself. I feel as though the cover would work very well and i’ve focused equally on the image itself along with the text and typography and learnt a lot to what goes into designing a cover, especially the technicality side and bleeding related to printing. Mockingbird
