Custom illustration & cover design of Frances Hodgson Burnett’s children’s classic The Secret Garden.
I wanted to design an elegant and modern cover of Burnett’s classic that would appeal to young readers between the ages of 9-15 years.
I used a sophisticated and vibrant colour scheme to compliment the modern design as well as a hand written, cursive title to symbolise the emotional and heartfelt nature of The Secret Garden’s story.
Along with the complimentry youthful colours, I also wanted the cover design to contain signficant story elements such as the garden’s key, key hole and the friendly red robin.
This project is a creative concept to illustrate my creative skills.
