Redesigning of a classic book series. I chose The Chronicles of Narnia. I felt it was a classic that younger generations should feel free to pick up and read, but older generations who grew up with should also connect with the new redesign.
I started with the covers people would recognize first. The ones that were adapted into a film. The more popular books. I chose to hand letter 80% of the cover and illustrate everything. I wanted it to feel inviting and eyecatching to attract younger audiences. I felt myself captivated by the covers that were beautifully illustrated and designed. The older covers were all illustration heavy. I wanted to pay homage to that by incorporating my own illustration skills.
I really like how they turned out and cannot wait to finish the rest of the series. They are very effective and are cohesive in style and color.
