For this project, I was asked to re-design a book jacket. I chose one of my favorite novels from my teenage years: The Summer I Turned Pretty by Jenny Han.
The novel is a coming of age drama the centers around young love, the beach, family and an unforgettable summer away from home.
When creating concepts, I reminisced on what it was like to be that age and how I felt when I read the book. I wanted the design to really resonate with teenage girls.
For the final design, I went with a cool summer color palette and innocent doodle illustrations that focuses on being seen through different lenses. I also went with a hand lettered title that resembles a teenage girl’s notebook doodles.
