This is a final assignment project I had on the second Graphic Design studio, that is to redesign a book that I chose, entitled “Coco Chanel: The Legend and The Life” by Justine Picardie.
The brief was to redesign any books that have bad layout design. I chose to redesign this book because simply the book was not attractive at all; it was like any other ordinary boring biography books. The book itself is about the famous Mademoiselle Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel, the founder of the luxurious brand, CHANEL. In order to get the "Chanel" feel on the book, I decided to do a research about Chanel visual style. I adopted some elements and characteristics that I felt suitable with Chanel to the design. I decided to make the design all using black and white to capture the spirit of Chanel during her lifetime era. The simple and bold design aimed to relate more to Chanel's aesthetic.
