CREATIVELY DRIVEN. INSPIRING CHANGE. BRINGING IDEAS TOWARDS ACTION!

To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
Penguin Book cover design award competition entry

The unforgettable novel of a childhood in a sleepy Southern town and the crisis of conscience that rocked it, To Kill A Mockingbird became both an instant bestseller and a critical success when it was first published in 1960. 
It went on to win the Pulitzer Prize in 1961 and was later made into an Acedemy Award - winning film, also a classic. Compassionate, dramatic, and deeply moving To Kill A Mockingbird takes readers to the roots of human behaviour - to innocence and experience, kindness and cruelty, love and hatred, humour and pathos. Now with over 18 million copies in print and translated into ten languages, this regional story by Harper Lee always considered her book to be a simple love story. Today it is regarded as a masterpiece of American literature.  

In response to the Adult Fiction competition brief for Penguin, this design takes a surreal and dark approach to communicate the story of a black man charged with a rape of a white girl and the lawyer - Atticus Finch who wants to reveal the truth to his fellow town people, exposure their bigotry and encourage them to imagine the possibility of racial equality. Specifically the theme of ‘Gender, class and prejudice’ through abstract typography and illustrations. On the back cover, the typography is presented in a contrasting calm and minimal layout that provides a visual tension with the style of the front.

The Establishment by Owen Jones

‘A dissection of the profoundly and sickeningly corrupt state that is present-day Britain. He is a fine writer, and this is a truly necessary book’ Phillip Pullman

 

Behind our democracy lurks a powerful but unaccountable network of people who wield massive power and reap huge profits in the process. In exposing this shadowy and complex system that dominates our lives, Owen Jones sets out on a journey into the heart of our Establishment, from the lobbies of Westminster to the newsrooms, boardrooms and trading rooms of Fleet Street and the City. Exposing the revolving doors that link these worlds, and the vested interests that bind them together, Jones shows how, in claiming to work on our behalf, the people at the top are doing precisely the opposite. In fact, they represent the biggest threat to our democracy today - and it is time they were challenged.

Norwegian Wood by Haruki Murakami
Adult Fiction

‘Evocative, entertaining, sexy and funny; but then Murakami is one of the best writers around’ Time Out
When he hears her favourite Beatles song, Toru Watanabe recalls his first love Naoko, the girlfriend of his best friend Kizuki. Immediately he is transported back almost twenty years to his student days in Tokyo, adrift in a world of uneasy friendships, casual sex, passion, loss and desire – to a time when an impetuous young woman called Midori marched into his life and he had to choose between the future and the past.
‘Such is the exquisite, gossamer construction of Murakami’s writing that everything he chooses to describe trembles with symbolic possibility’ Guardian
‘This book is undeniably hip, full of student uprisings, free love, booze and 1960s’ pop, it’s also genuinely emotionally engaging, and describes the highs of adolescence as well as the lows’ Independent on Sunday
‘A heart-stoppingly moving story... Murakami is, without a doubt, one of the world’s finest novelists’ Herald
