Aleksandrs Golubovs - Competition success

Final year Graphic Communication student Alex Golubovs is one of only ten students from across the UK whose work has been shortlisted by Publishers Penguin Random House for its prestigious 2014 Design Award. Penguin Random House received more than 1,100 entries for the Design competition which includes The Penguin Adult Prize and the Puffin Childrens Prize.

"I chose to design an abstract cover using simple shapes that I find appealing. 

“The eyes were puffy from lack of sleep and bloodshot from too much glassy staring at the television screen…” 

My design replicates CRT TV screen close up detail. This concept was based on the main character, Michael's depression, isolation and his obsessive TV watching." said Alex Golubovs

"This challenging brief asked for a cover design for Jonathan Coe's novel What a Carve Up and was chosen by Alex from a range of live and competition projects undertaken by our final year graphic design students; we are delighted that his entry has been shortlisted."

said Ian Madeley Senior Lecturer in Visual Communication

"Award schemes such as this provide students with access to a brief set by the Publishing Industry and a great opportunity for feedback from designers and illustrators at Penguin Random House."
