Project A: Book/Magazine Re-Design: Production Plan [Nasma]

— your book or magazine: A Novel: Freedom Apartment
Audience: Adults
 Book Description: This novel is about 4 students who left their country (Bahrain) to Egypt in the 1950s to study there. This was common for Gulf student because there were no universities in the Gulf during that time. Describing each personality and the differences between the lifestyle in the Gulf and Egypt regarding to the culture. Many things they went around while they were studying there such as joining political movements and organizations beside private relationships. This novel creates an image of new modernization in Arabs country. This book is kind real story because the writer was one the gulf students who studied in Egypt and he was an ambassador in UK and now he is minister in K.S.A.
Art Direction: I want to change a little bit and do something with Arabic. I think the book cover has to show the obscure part of Cairo that these student want to discover. I can’t use a direct image of a person because the reader mind will capture the image as one of the students in the story. My idea is focusing on the gulf identity and Egypt.
Gulf, identity, Egypt, passion, freedom, love, lifestyle

  1. I think this story was made into a series in the 90s right

  2. Yes. I read that. 🙂

  3. Your art direction only tells me about the story content. The art direction should explain why and how you want to execute your plan for the design 🙂
