Into the Wild

Book Cover Redesign

Into the Wild Cover Redesign

Prompt

For this project, I was asked to create a custom book cover, front and back, for an existing book of my choosing. I was required to create an illustrative cover fully rendered in Adobe Photoshop using a variety of brushes and overlays.

Solution

With the giving requirements, I decided to redesign the cover of Into the Wild as I felt this book could greatly benefit from an illustrative cover due to its very dull and text heavy cover. I wanted to move away from the original cover imagery of a school bus and focus on the wild aspect of the book, leading me to create a design featuring the ominous Mt. McKinley and complimented with a darker color palette to emphasize the darker undertones of the book.
