Anna Kovecses: øyenvitne
Its always refreshing to see something so pure where the balance of colour and composition nestle like perfect bedfellows!
Anna Kovecses has really hit the nail on the head with these books covers for Norwegian publishing house øyenvitne (Norwegian for ‘eyewitness’). Her brief included logo mark, visual identity and covers for four crime novels by young Scandinavian authors.
Two dimensional yet collaged, their naive beauty reminds us of the painterly yet geometric compositions of Matisse and the hand-cut quality of Jean Arp and our own Kirra Jamison with a David Hockney pool series colour palette. The juxtaposition of their stylised bright covers to their content make them all the more appealing.
Anna Kovecses lives on the seaside in Cyprus with her boyfriend and small daughter creating delightful graphics with just the right dose of nostalgia – sounds idyllic doesn’t it!
