For this project, I was tasked with redesigning the classic book cover for Jonathan Swift's most popular 18th-century novel. My objective was to create a cover that would resonate with modern readers while remaining faithful to the book's themes and tone. To start, I delved into the book's history and analyzed the key motifs and themes, such as moral vs. physical power, the limitations of the human mind, and society vs. the individual. From there, I developed several design concepts, experimenting with various images, colors, and typography. I settled on a final design that featured a bold rendition of the protagonist, Gulliver: quadrisected to represent the four adventures he goes on, coupled with a striking color scheme and decorations that captured the book's adventurous and imaginative elements.
