THE PENGUIN RANDOM HOUSE STUDENT DESIGN AWARD 2021
For The Penguin Random House Student Design Award 2021 submission, I redesigned the book cover for ‘The Uninhabitable Earth.’ The book discusses the Earth’s bleak future from the effects of climate change.
The first concept I had was applying used objects, as images, found from the aftermath of a party. The objects symbolise how we have treated our planet as one big party, and we are now faced with the consequences of mistreating it. The other concept was using the symbolic image of an apple, from the religious aspect of purity changing to sin. The fruit has turned mouldy and the purity of this world has rotten along side it too.
