Penguin Book Covers

Freakonomics

My entry to Penguin Book Covers competition 2014/2015. The book title was Freakonomics. It was about underground knowledge of very normal events such as selling a house or naming a child.

I wanted to show a drastic contast in my design to show the difference between what is commonly thoughtof upon the topics covered in the book, and what actually exists. I also wanted to display organised chaos to help try and illustrate that although there is a darker side to things such as sumo wrestling, there is underground knowledge and planning which controls it.

What A Carve Up!

My entry for penguin book cover competition 2013/2014. For this cover I thought I would try to incorporate how the family’s deaths are tied together through a complex plot. I thought that the result was eye pleasing and well thought out.
