Book Jacket Design - Noughts & Crosses Series

 I designed these book covers for the first minor brief of third year at NTU. We were required to design book covers for a series of three books by the same author, and I chose the Noughts & Crosses series by Malorie Blackman. This series covers a number of issues, but above all things, this story is about racism. My book covers use symbols to create the characters that are depicted in the books, and the bold red further symbolises the many emotions that are explored in the books. This colour was chosen as the only primary colour in the series as it holds a number of meanings itself, which relate to a number of issues and emotions which are explored in the story, such as love, death and revenge.
