Do Androids Dream

of Electric Sheep

Alternative Book Cover

The movie Blade Runner has always been a huge inspiration for me. When it came to choosing which book cover I wanted to redesign, I turned to this one. Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep explores what it means to be human, and the existential crisis we live in. I created this cover to be both neon and dull, with a slime green color and a grungy black. I pulled some inspiration from Blade Runner's Neo-Tokyo aesthetic and tried to give the book an updated design to match the movie. 

I created the cover, trying to design a minimal image that conveyed the concepts of the book. Quite literally, if you look at the symbols, it reads the title to you. The eye being androids dreaming, the plug being the power source providing electricity, and the paper sheep.
