The Author & Auteur Collection
The Author & Auteur Collection is a box set I designed of movies packaged along with the books they are based on. They include three Movie/Book pairs, a box and two promotional posters.
The goal of this project was to create a collectible package that makes a statement about the relationship between film and literature, and examines the way an auteur interprets the work of an author. I chose three sets of adaptations: One traditional (To Kill a Mockingbird/ To Kill a Mockingbird,) one non-traditional (Heart of Darkness/ Apocalypse Now,) and one adventurous (The Orchid Thief/ Adaptation.) The cover designs were meant to communicate the deeper meanings of the books and films, while at the same time respecting the similarities and differences between the two mediums.
I designed a logo, set of three covers, box, and two promotional posters.
"Your work is really gorgeous; I'm flattered to have inspired such a great piece of design. "
