I'm Shivani, a Freelance Designer and 3D Illustrator based in London currently working at Riff Raff Films, previously worked at It's Nice That. My approach to design is a mixture of analogue and digital methods along with a splash of fun. I like to push the boundaries in all my projects using unconventional materials and textures wherever I can. Get in touch at: Shivani.Panchal@hotmail.com

Norwegian Wood
Penguin Student Design Award Competition brief to re-design the book cover for Norwegian Wood by Haruki Murakami. The concept of this cover design is character growth and memory. The leaf symbolises the growth of the main character, Toru Watanabe, after the highs and lows he faced throughout the book.

The colour represents the 1960s time period and the roughness on the background texture mirrors character struggles in the book. The typography on the book cover has been etched into a sycamore leaf, demonstrating the theme of memory. Memory can sometimes be blotchy and I wanted to convey this in the font by having some of the lettering unreadable allowing the mind to fill in the blanks.
