    Bookcover redesign for the novel We Need to Talk About Kevin.
Cover Design

Redesign of the bookcover for Lionel Shriver's We Need to Talk About Kevin. After reading this novel for personal enjoyment I was distracted by the juxtaposition of cover and contents. The cover just did not do the creepiness of this book justice. 

For my redesign, I focused the viewer's attention to three points – the title, the Orange Fiction prize seal, and the eyeball. The eyeball, sitting alone against a neutral backdrop, aludes to the novel's plotline and provides a degree of uneasiness that the original cover lacked. Eyeballs are rarely seen outside and separate from faces. This instance casts a ubiquitous organ, the eye, as matter out of place and fosters a disturbed energy.

Product shots coming soon.
