The Great Gatsby

Industry | Graphic Design

“And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, just as things grow in fast movies, I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer.”

The Great Gatsby is one of those classic novels you never forget. This book cover was created based on Fitzgeralds use of color as symbolism throughout the novel. Just like the quote above, I always got a very vivid sense of color and texture while reading this book. Utilizing the appropriate colors and textures, I created a clean and modern book cover, using an embossing technique so the user can interact with the raised squares and toothy texture. An accompanying trailer was also created as an extension of this book cover design.
