The Restless Mind

Opportunity

Design conceptually driven book cover jackets for four Penguin Classic books.

Solution

I chose Penguin Classic books that had themes of Utopian societies, with my target audience being the punk scene; the misunderstood, the rebels, the outcasts, the people who question anything and everything while seeking truth. I titled the series The Restless Minds with my concept being to question everything you are told, in order to see where the truth is and to seek it for yourself. Each book has a specific theme: identity, freedom, discovery, and fulfillment. I took objects and symbols for each of these themes, ripped them up, and destroyed them to represent the questioning and testing of everything, as well as the inside of a restless mind.
