Penguin Design Awards
Shortlisted for Penguin student design awards 2021. Fiction Cover.
" I wanted the cover to focus on Indian culture combined with femininity and intimacy. There was much emphasis on the jewellery specifically 3 bangles for each woman. Referencing to Sunita Chila, and Tania . I was fortunate to collaborate with Mathushaa Sagthidas of Indian descent who photographed beautiful traditional fabrics, hands and jewellery to reference from. The bangles represent womanhood, intimacy and identity, whilst the fabric represents tradition in Indian culture. The juxtaposition of the front and back cover represents the disconnect each woman faces with their culture and themselves."
