Talking Turkeys - Book Cover Design
Penguin Student Design Awards Entry
Minor Project 3
The brief was to design a striking cover design, based on Benjamin Zephaniah's 'Talking Turkeys', that is well executed, has an imaginative concept and clearly places the book for its market. The cover should encourage children to pick the book up themselves but should also engage adults to want to buy it for them.
Penguin Random House Children’s Art Director Anna Billson's Feedback:
A really fun cover. The bright colour scheme works really well, pulling all the elements of the design together. The front, back and spine all work individually, but you have also successfully created an overall package that combines seamlessly. It’s a well-considered design and extremely worth of its place on the shortlist – congratulations!
It’s an incredible achievement to have been selected as one of the 30 shortlisted students from a total of over 2,000 entries and the judges were bowled over by the quality of all of the designs on this year’s shortlist.
