Book Jacket Design

I created a book jacket design for the novel "Things We Lost to the Water," exploring two different perspectives and creating unique patterns for the book jackets. The synopsis follows a mother and her two sons who escape from Vietnam and make it to New Orleans. It's an epic family tale, spanning 26 years that tells of how the family grows, falls apart, and grapples with what it means to be Vietnamese in New Orleans.

Design Idea 1

The design concept aims to visually represent the story of a family separated and adjusting to life as immigrants in New Orleans. The front and back covers depict the separation between parent and child as if it is fading away into the water, reflecting the themes of loss and displacement in the novel.
