Lord of the Flies
The brief was to develop a new cover design for William Golding's compelling story about a group of very ordinary small boys marooned on a coral island. The story begins with adventure but before long the island turns into a nightmare filled with panic and death.
To design a full cover that conveys the savagery that developed on the island.
Create a cover that is different and unique.
I loved this book as a child and still do. I wanted to do this classic novel justice and portray the savage nature of the boys and the collapse of civilisation, focusing on visual communication I did what any other designer would do first, I bought a pig’s head and the rest is history.
