Harry Potter Book Cover Redesign

This is a minimalist redesign of J.K. Rowling's first Harry Potter book. I wanted to incorporate an essential idea from both the story itself, as well as its main character. To do this, I paired the famous lightning bolt scar with the Sorcerer's Stone, making it look like a crack in the gem. I think this subtle incorporation of multiple story details lends itself well the minimalist graphic designs. It takes a large idea, and condenses it into a simpler form.
