His Dark Materials book covers

I challenged myself to redesign Philip Pullman's "His Dark Materials" Trilogy, my aim being to produce a contemporary, illustrative covers for a modern audience. 

I attempted to avoid any obvious imagery, and opted to hint at the settings and characters in each book in a more subtle manner using metaphors and shapes to represent the story.

Book one - The Northern Lights

Book two - The Subtle Knife

Book three - The Amber Spyglass

Book three - The Amber Spyglass

The thing I most enjoyed about working on this trilogy was making each cover unique, but using type and media to tie them all together. Producing each cover with a different, selective colour palette.
