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

"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."
"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."
