I decided to design a book cover for a fiction that I had been in a close relationship with for a few years. George Orwell’s 1984 served not only as the subject of my MA thesis in English Literature but it proved to be a rich source of inspiration in design. The unique atmosphere of the dystopian novel allowed for an illustration that focuses on the question of uniformity and oddity. I used visual symbols that refer to some of the main aspects of the story.
