For my Intro to Typography class, I was to choose three books that were thematically relevant, redesign the book covers, and present them as a series. The objective was to use typography and shapes to create designs that are visually cohesive and communicate that the books are a series.
I chose three of the books I read last semester for a Comparative Literature class at Brown called "Killer Love: Crime and Passion in Fiction and Film" taught by Professor Nikolaos Panou.
While I used rectangular shapes as means of cohesion for the series, I treated these shapes differently in each front cover so that these diverse composition can provide each cover distinct identities. More importantly, the arrangement of the geometric shapes is faithful to the typographic arrangement.
I had a lot of fun with this assignment - these books were my favorites from the semester, and I'm so happy to have been able to work with these.
