Book Cover Design Brief:

I had to choose from one of the authors listed below and create a system for the rebranding of at least six of their titles.

The titles should work as a coherent set; this will be achieved through the design and implementation of a system that will guide your design choices across the range. This system should dictate the properties that stay consistent across the covers; therefore you should consider areas such as:
grid, colour, typographic styles and typographic families, imagery, dimensions and materials. Above all else the design should be sympathetic to the author and appropriate to the audience.
I had to hand in: Proposals for a series of six covers and a maquette for two titles, either as a hardback or paperback.
Authors to choose from:
Sara Wheeler, Martin Amis, Jane AustenIan, Ian Rankin, John Le Carré and Margaret Atwood
