This project was created as a book cover assignment. The objective was to design the cover which relates to the story of the book.
I started this project brainstorming how the main character of the book Mark Watney, felt when he was in left in Mars alone. Later during the development on the project, I focused on how the astronauts on earth and Mark made contacts with each other to bring him back home.
The concept of connection between the two parts of universe was presented using the Morse code (as it was a part of the story). This also hint the reader about the agony, fear from being far from home.
