Book Jacket Design
Book Jacket Redesign for Issa Rae's The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl. Cover artwork inspired by renaissance paintings of monarchs, as well as religious paintings of predominately male figures. The artwork is meant to carry a mood of empowerment. The title typography uses a serif typeface, for a classic look. The hierarchy of words is meant to call attention to Awkward Black Girl, which was the title of Rae's Youtube series that brought her fame. The body copy text uses the typeface Roboto—the same typeface used on Youtube, again referring back to where she began to gain popularity.
