Award: Yellow Pencil

Yellow Pencil / Book Design / Book Front Covers / 2008

Bringing science fiction to a new audience isn’t easy, but that’s what we were asked to do with these ‘future classics’. Outside the genre, these titles and authors are unknown, so putting them on the front seemed unnecessary. But making the books eye catching was. By using different papers and printing techniques, we created a strong series look for the covers. Despite working with an extremely low budget, we produced highly collectable, limited editions that not only got people talking but also buying.
