This project was a unique task for the Chandler Book Design team due to the genre of the novel and the particular target audience. Essence Hunters is a fantasy book aimed at a young adult target audience; and therefore needed a design to reflect this pitch. The design team realised early on within the initial stages of the project that one of the biggest challenges for this Cover Design was that the choice of imagery needed to reflect the age group the author intended. As a result, the team created a slightly gothic toned representation of an English castle with a photorealistic dragon superimposed into the image. The dark red hues are moody, yet not intimidating for this particular audience; and is enough to draw the reader in.
