Le Retour Aux Sources
Brief: Create a cover design for the book "Le Capitalisme - Un Génocide Structurel". In the wake of the global financial crisis and ongoing savage government cuts across the world, Garry Leech addresses a pressing and necessary topic: the nature of contemporary capitalism, and how it inherently generates inequality and structural violence.
Concept: The idea is based on a human skull and since the book makes a comparison with genocide and capitalism, a dollarsign as a representative of capitalism is put on the forehead of the skull like a caste mark, like being marked as belonging to the "religion" of capitalism. The image in a combination with some visual typography, makes a cover that stands out.
