This project was for a Book Design technology class in which we chose a book to redesign its dusk jacket. I chose the novel "Big Little Lies" and made two iterations for the assignment. I thought there was an opportunity for a cover that reflects a more modern aesthetic, without using the actors faces as a selling point. I watercolored one of the images myself for one version and used a portrait to create a different dramatic feel.
I employed my knowledge of typography, Adobe InDesign, and studio art to create these two dust jackets. I learned techniques specific to dust jacket design, including sizing the book and creating correctly laid out files so that the dust jacket to perfectly hug around the book. I found my attention to detail helpful in making sure every element was spaced accordingly. It was a challenge to create a design that was cohesive as a whole design but stood alone as each panel.
