Book cover design

Book cover design for the Penguin Random House Student Design Awards 2019 (Adult Fiction cover award): 
Norwegian Wood by Haruki Murakami.

This book cover was inspired by Naoko, one of the characters in the book. The watercolour cherry blossom petals represent Naoko’s complicated, beautiful, and fragile personality. They reference the fact that cherry blossoms in Japan symbolise the fragility and shortness of life.
