We’ve recently submitted a design for a competition by Feathr – a wicked Scandinavian company working with new designers on a range of cool interior projects. We adapted one of our existing designs with a ‘Wes Anderson’ inspired colour scheme and we really hope you like the results. If you do, we would love your votes to be in with the chance of winning! Just head over to the Feather website and cast your vote before the 9th of May.
Here’s our next instalment of our ‘favourite films redesigned as book covers’ and this time we’ve gone for a quirky cult classic Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. If you haven’t seen it then it’s definitely one to watch, it grows on us more and more every time we watch it. You may find it odd at first but give it a go and it won’t disappoint. The film plays on the concept of heartbreak and the power to erase the memories of an ex overnight…something which we’ve all thought about! This combined with colourful art direction and kooky dream sequences makes it one of our favourite films of all time.
Designing book covers has always been on our ‘really want to do’ list ever since we launched our pattern collection. It stems from our love of Coralie Bickford Smith’s clothbound series for Penguin Books which we’re still gradually adding to our bookshelf in our studio! You may have already noticed, but here at Tuppence Collective we’re also massive film fans and we’ve been itching to come up with a project to combine our passion for film with our goal to design our own series of book covers…and here is the result.
Over the next few weeks we’ll be working on adapting some of our favourite films into a collection of patterned book covers, starting with a sci-fi gem ‘Interstellar’. We love all of Nolan’s work and ideally we would have chosen a film that included Tom Hardy or Cillian Murphy but as it’s his most recent feature, we decided that ‘Interstellar’ would be best to kick-start our new project.
Keep an eye out on our blog to see which film will make the cut for our next book design.
