It’s Elementary, My Dear

Book Cover Design

OBJECTIVE_

Design a series of three book covers for a reissue of those three chosen titles from the publisher. Each selected cover is different yet predictable, and should reflect the essence of the book. Research the target audience and other factors that can inform the design process.

APPROACH_

I had the Sherlock Holmes series as my topic. The style of the stories are ominous so I chose three dark colors for the covers. I incorporated morse code and the deconstrcted shape of the first letter of each title to demonstrate the feeling of mystery and foreboding.
