Goodnight MISTER TOM

Penguin Student Design Award

I entered the Penguin Student Design Awards 2020 under the Children's Cover Award category. The brief was to redesign the cover for the penguin classic Goodnight Mister Tom. My concept is based on an integral part of the story where William’s growth as a boy truly begins after a deprived childhood in London - he is able to write his own name for the first time. My style is influenced by William’s love for drawing and the memory of his friend Zach and the Joseph technicolour jumper that has been “buried inside him”.
