Perfume – Cover Design & Illustration


In my final year of university I won the Penguin Design Award for my design for Patrick Süskind's Perfume. The illustration was created in a stlye aimed to mirror the period in which the book was set. Drawn are scenes and ideas from the novel, with the orange representing the feminine scent that leads Grenouille to murder. Part of the prize included a placement in both the General and Press departments at Penguin.
