about the project

One of my projects for my Graphic Design course at UPenn: a redesign of a book cover for the novel Amerika by Franz Kafka.

The story starts on a boat and has a constant theme of traveling and wandering through life in the strange country of America as the author imagined it. And so, using basic shapes to compose a design that could be simple and yet effective, I tried to create an image that was both picturesque and symbolic: a reference to both the chaos and simplicity of the story.
