Penguin/Puffin Design Award entry

I recently entered the Penguin/Puffin Design Award for book cover design and worked through a number of concepts using stencil screen print and Risograph techniques. These are great processes for exploring random textures and "mistakes" in the printing processes and I was really pleased with the results.

These were then scanned, photographed and composited in Illustrator and Photoshop to create the final cover below.
