Design Rationale

Bleakboy and Hunter Stand Out in the Rain is a funny book using irreverent humour about the environmentally friendly and alternative way of life. Due to the very long title I chose a typographic solution in a humorous typeface. Rain is a strong theme throughout the story. I illustrated the clouds, whale and raindrops in a bold, colourful style suitable for the young audience. I continued the use of illustrations and typestyle on the inside cover, prelims and chapter titles.
