Book Design Inspiration from the D&AD Student Awards

Check out these photos of student-designed projects for the 2010 annual D&AD Student Awards program, aiming to “firstly, find the best new talent for the industry, and secondly, to put creativity high on the agenda in the higher and further education curriculum… on a global level.” The images below are from the 2010 Book Design Category, by Luke Roberts and Simon Harry Cox from the Norwich University College of the Arts. For this portion of the competition, students were challenged to design a “stunning and contemporary cover look” for three of more of HG Wells’ books: The History of Mr. Polly, Kipps, Ann Veronica, Tono-Bungay, or Love and Mr. Lewisham. According to the students, each book cover incorporates the first chapter title and synopsis into a newspaper article to represent HG Wells’ use of a single character to personify cultural change, much like how journalists use a single story to frame a social issue.
