  • Future Shock Book Covers
     
    The brief was to re-design the covers of 4 science fiction books. The books chosen were George Orwell's, '1984', Anthony Burgess', 'A Clockwork Orange', Ray Bradbury's, 'Fahrenheit 451' & Aldous Huxley's, 'Brave New World'. The brief required the four book covers to look as if they were grouped together and to carry the same design choices throughout.
     
    I chose to try and communicate a quote from each of the books onto the covers using only very basic forms of visual communication and restricting myself as much as possible. I set myself the restrictions that I can only use three shapes: square, triangle & circle, and that I can only use the three primary colours.
     
    This was an exercise in basic visual communication...
  • 1984. “Big Brother is watching you”.
  • A Clockwork Orange. “This would sharpen you up and make you ready for a bit of the old ultra violence”.
  • Fahrenheit 451. “Build a mirror factory first so society can take a long look into it”.
  • Brave New World. “Everyone belongs to everyone else”.
