One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest
(Penguin Books Competition - Jacket Design)
For one of my projects this year I’ve decided to enter the Penguin Books Competition which is to produce a cover design for One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.
I enjoyed this project massively, I took on a new style of working and researched heavily into Mental Health and its developement through the years. This lead me to creating quite a dark cover, the design is supposed to be quite orthodox and “conform to the system”, the background and the typography rebel against this representing the power struggle from the story. I think there’s quite a lot of representation contained within this design and I like the fact that people can read into it differently given their knowledge of the story.
