Bronze Award – The Real Show 2014 Student Competition
This dustcover was one of my first graphic design projects created during my undergrad years at Towson University. As part of The Real Show student competition, I opted for a whimsical re-design for the cover of How to Rock Braces and Glasses by Meg Haston. After several brainstorming sessions thinking “What type of design screams middle school girl while still being relatable?”, I had an idea: turn the cover into a diary.
I used illustrations, a handwritten title, and vibrant colors to create a design that would resonate with a 7th-8th grade audience. Coincidentally, it also reminded me of my excessive sticker use in middle school and my days with braces and glasses.
