As part of the Penguin book award I designed a cover for the Puffin bookcover brief "The Outsiders" by S.E. Hinton. My aim for this project was to create a design that was appealing to its teenage target marker. The concept that I decided to base the design on was the poem "Nothing Can Stay Gold" by Robert Foster, I belive it has a big impact on the charaters Ponyboy and Johnny. The typography is based around the style of american dinners from the 1950-60s with a modern twist and incorporating negative space into the title.
