The Little Red Hen

Designed for Dert

DERT works with emerging designers to create unique, customized books. Each DERT book features the design and conceptual artwork created by graphic design students. DERT’s collaborative studio program partners with students at art schools to produce book products that are used for fundraising towards charitable literacy efforts. 

The design concept is to create a fresh and contemporary expression of the story. It was inspired by a combination of expressive watercolor techniques and the simple charm of minimal vector illustrations. I expressed the familiar farm animals with this combination of simple design and watercolor textures to give the reader a world that could be filled in more by their own imagination.
