The Kite Runner Book Jacket.

This is a full book jacket that I designed for the first assignment in Typographic Studies on the Graphic Design degree. The idea was to represent the themes of the book on the front cover, using only typography. Here, I really wanted to focus on the themes of separation, old and new, loss and gain; henvce the cut – out effect and the mirror image. As well as this, I chose a colour palette of various shades of brown, beige and cream to create a dusty, atmospheric feel of Afghanistan, the setting of the story. I am really pleased with the design overall.
