Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit

2015. Book cover design.

This is my proposed design for ‘Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit’ by Jeanette Winterson, as part of The Penguin Random House Design Award 2015. With this design, I have tried to offer a book that would stand out among others but without telling too much about the story or the subject of the book, so as to make the audience interested enough to pick up the book and find out more. Since this is a rather well-known book, I only kept one part of the title on the cover, replacing “oranges” with the apple illustration, so as to show the rebellious nature of the main character and her struggle with accepting who she is. The apple also represents the more religious character of the book, as does the very simple and minimal cross appearing on the back of the book.
