A study in historical styles. I chose the design movement ‘Memphis’ as my inspiration for 2 book covers. One, for a fictional book titled ‘Memphis: Awesome or Awful’ about the design movement itself and the other, for ‘The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy’ whose zany storytelling and colorful characters relate to the core concept of Memphis as a design movement. The colors and patterns of Memphis are used for visual interest and as a vehicle for storytelling.
