BOOK COVERS - THE HOBBIT
I created two book covers to J.R.R Tolkien’s fantastical The Hobbit. The first cover is image-heavy, and the second cover is text-heavy.
For the overall looks, I wanted the covers to both bring a more modern element to the classic tale. Using flat vector images for a clean look and simple gradients for aesthetic interest, I created two covers that pull the best elements from previous book covers.
For the text-heavy cover, I wanted to do a play on the main character’s title for the book, There and Back Again. I incorporated both the official title and the fictional title into the cover by playing with font color and proximity.
