Penguin brief – One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest

A few months ago we were given the new penguin brief as our project, and with book design being one of my favourite elements of design I was over the moon. We were asked to create a magazine of the book (as shown below), typeset the first two chapters and then create to book covers, one digital and one non digital. Straight away I was looking forward to the challenge.

For my digital cover, I wanted it to look very mysterious and intrigue the viewer with bold imagery and unfussy type.


For my Non digital, I wanted to feature two designs in one using a fold over book jacket. The cover represents a more clear version of how a character (Nurse Ratched) wants things to be and then the under layer shows how it really is.
