Penguin UK asked us to create covers to two beloved John Steinbeck stories in an effort to attract young readers to the classics. Each cover depicts a minimalist graphic arrangement of the pursued vs. the pursuing. The simple visuals use iconography that is clear and emotionally resonant to readers of all ages. The deceptively simple stories contain complex human struggles.
