Origin of the Species

I took on the challenge of designing a new cover for a classic book that changed humankind’s understanding of the world. I was fascinated by the visual metaphor of vast time and developed imagery that connected the biology of evolution to the cosmos.

 I also designed an inside treatment for the book, using sketches and notes taken from Darwin's original journals.

 Attention to detail is so important when it comes to great design. With this in mind, I also created a logo for a fictitious publishing house called Parachute Press. I enjoyed creating buoyant visual tension in this playful logo through the use of negative space.
