1. Norwegian Wood

A book design I created in response to the Penguin Student Design Awards for the chosen book Norwegian Wood.

Penguin Student Design Awards / 2019
Adult Fiction Cover Award Norwegian Wood
by Haruki Murakami

The Penguin Random House Student Design Award is an opportunity for students interested in pursuing a career in design to experience real cover design briefs firsthand. The challenge was to design a book cover for this years Adult Fiction Cover Award’s chosen book ‘Norwegian Wood’.  

The book is full of the highs and lows of adolesence, free love combined with Murakami’s vivid and imaginative writing about 1960’s Japan. I wanted my cover design to reflect this.
