Project Description

The Big Short, written by Michael Lewis, tells the appalling non-fiction story of the build-up to the 2008 US financial crisis. The book jacket redesign limits itself to using two colours and typography as imagery. Chaotic typography in the redesign conveys the build-up and collapse of the housing market. Throughout the disarray, an impactful green representing greed and money disperses throughout each section to unify the jacket.
