Dust Jacket Redesign


The goal of this project was to redesign an outdated book dust jacket. My book of choice was Caroline B. Cooney’s The Face on the Milk Carton. Published in 1991, the dust jacket had become slightly outdated. This book covers a lot of topics such as love/relationships, family, and self identity specifically geared towards young females. I believe there is huge potential for revamping the cover to appeal more to that specific audience. I wanted a fresh new and appealing design that would attract the young adult audience this book was intended for.

Initial Sketches



Digital Sketches

Working from my rough sketches I began to further develop three main concepts. I aimed to give each of the three digital renderings a completely different feel.
