The Silver Linings Playbook Cover (student brief)
For this brief we were asked to create something completely handmade for a print product. I'd recently read and loved The Silver Linings Playbook, which tells the story of Pat, who thinks his life is a film directed by God which will have a silver lining ending. The book ends with the two main characters lying on the ground with a cloud chart looking up at the clouds.
I wanted to create a broken and cloudy sky backdrop for this book cover design, to reflect the book title and the final scene of the book. I used watercolour paper and paints to create uneven textured paper, which I then used to papercut my design and build up layers to create depth in the sky. I hand drew the typography for the front and spine of the book so that it's in keeping with the natural and rough effect of the overall design.
