Describe the brief from the client
Most people associate our brand with Penguin Classics, and the range had been doing well. Now, the client wanted to tell readers about the exciting titles available in other categories.

Describe the challenges and key objectives
The client wanted to showcase their variety at the upcoming KL International Book Fair. However, in an ADD marketplace with dozens of competitive publishers we had to grab attention, while at the same time speak to those who may have pigeon-holed us to a certain role.

Describe how you arrived at the final design
We wanted to create a distinct visual identity that reflected the wide range of products, without sacrificing the familiarity of the brand. We found the solution right under our noses, or rather, on our spine.

Give some indication of how successful the outcome was in the market
As the campaign is still in its early stages, results (in terms of sales and perception) are currently being tabulated.
