Penguin book covers

I recently entered the Penguin Random House Student Design Awards. This competition is an opportunity for students interested in designing book covers. 

 

The brief was to design a cover look for Goodnight Mister Tom to bring this original and unforgettable book to new readers. 

 

To create my cover, I took inspiration from my knowledge of the book recognising that Mr Tom and William kept sending each other letters. 

 

I wanted to make this the key point throughout the design but also make sure the cover was pleasing on the eye and attractive for children to entice them to read.
