Artist and Designer
Portfolio > Book Cover Design
While studying Digital Media and Studio Art at Eastern Mennonite University, Karla designed book covers for a series of classic books. She also made accompanying animated book covers for e-books if e-books have that capability in the future. The series was her senior capstone project for her Digital Media major, showcasing her skills in graphic design, film and animation, typography, and product design. She hopes that these covers inspire people to read books they may have otherwise overlooked.
Karla chose the iconic moment in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland of the gardeners painting the white roses red in the garden of the Queen of Hearts.
The roses are painted red in a stylized way in the animated vesion of the book cover. As the red color swirls and fills the white roses, one experiences the surreal, slightly disturbing feeling that pervades this classic children's story.
