The mandate of this project was to create a book focused on Stanley Kubrick, the famous American film director, and design a book cover and a few spreads by exploring his work and life. II needed to adequately represent the artist, but I was looking forward to unpacking Kubrick’s life in my way and putting my spin on it.

After extensive research, I gained an in-depth understanding of Stanley Kubrick as a person
and decided to focus on the conceptual theme of this book on a neglected characteristic of him: authenticity. The public tends to overlook Kubrick’s dedication to authenticity under all his given labels such as a perfectionist. That was also why I chose the subtitle: Not a perfectionist.  I wanted to change our conventional wisdom about Kubrick and conceptualize his entire oeuvre since he has such a wide range of work that was hard to unify.

The solution conceptualized Kubrick’s life and work, referenced a large number of cinematic features. The idea that the book cover should be a die-cut red dot is the most effective way I think I can reflect Kubrick’s work, as this abstraction contained so many metaphors, such as HAL in 2001, a drop of blood in The Shining, Clockwork Orange, and so on. The design of the interior pages relies on a high-contrast black and white design, with the signature red colour, while the treatment of the images follows the film’s execution, repeatedly using huge images that fill the pages to show the effects that the film would have.
