The brief:
There are two parts to this brief addressing two aspects of book design: page layout and cover design. Lay out these a collection of texts as if they were to be published as a Penguin paperback book called Darker Than Fiction, short stories by Marcus Bastel. Design the cover (front, back and spine) for the book.
The outcome:
I chose to focus on one of the stories and illustrate it for the cover, using mixed media (oil paint, Indian ink) to convey the sinister undertones of the story against clean and modern design. For the text of the book I used a serif typeface with a large x-height for ease of legibility and a full set of ligatures for an elegant look
