Orion Book / cover design

Project for Da&D Student Award.The brief was to design a stunning and contemporary cover look for one of the 20th Centurys most acclaimed authors, HG Wells.

We made a choice.
We kept original edition of the book because we think that bringing up to date an old story is a matter of watching it from another perspective, its not about looking for new shapes. We only used colour to mark a breaking point with the past.
We think that the essence of our contemporary is a tension against standards and current fashion. So we used old to get new.
Because there are no new stories, just different eyes.
This project was made in collaboration with Martina Francesconi.
