Life Isn't All Ha Ha Hee Hee by Meera Syal

Designing a book cover for ‘Life Isn’t All Ha Ha Hee Hee’ as part of the ‘Penguin Random House Student Design Award 2021’ competition
I participated in the Penguin Student Design Award for 2021 which is a national competition held every year. I designed this cover for ‘Life Isn't All Ha Ha Hee Hee by Meera Syal’. Out of the three choices given in the competition, I was eager to explore this novel. My main goal for this design was to show the South Asian culture through Henna patterns, but mix it with the London landscape and lifestyle. The book is all about how the characters navigate their lives with these two cultures. I was very happy with my final outcome!
