Bret Easton Ellis Covers

Scope: Book cover design
Art Direction: Paul Kepple, Scott Laserow
Photography: Austen Hart


Bret Easton Ellis is an author whose work is renowned for being highly controversial. The narrators of his books are often sleek on the surface, but empty within. I created a series of book covers that reflected this - with bold typography to emphasize the over-the-top nature of his work. The gradients used are a subtle nod to the 80s, with the colors referencing the location of the story.
