About This Project

These book jacket designs for ‘Emil and the detectives’ were submitted to the Penguin Random House Children’s book cover award, an opportunity for students interested in pursuing a career in design to experience real cover design briefs first-hand.


The book jacket has a striking cover design that is well executed, has an imaginative concept and clearly places the book for its market. While all elements of the jacket need to work together as a cohesive whole, the front cover was also designed to be effective on its own and be eye-catching within a crowded bookshop setting.
