The Outsider - Albert Camus

Over the Christmas holidays, I designed 3 new covers for the classic, cult novel 'The Outsider' as part of my course in graphic design. After reading the book, I decided that I wanted to stay away from incorporating any obvious figure in my work, as many previous covers had done this and I was keen to keep the contents of the book as ambiguous as possible. I tried a range of styles with my covers, and I think some worked better than others, however after the group critique I felt confident in my own ability to balance composition and colour, as well as suggest an appropriate mood and tone.
