- Editorial Beyond The PageOtherwise forget it by Bob Gill. The design is inspired by the phrase "Now, for very little money, it's possible to buy a program which allows anyone with a computer to produce most of the stuff for the average business". The use of barcodes is evident throughout as a barcode relates to a price of an item, an indication that the customer needs to pay for it. The AR adds to the theme of putting a price on design and not allowing the change in technology to affect a designer’s business.
- Goodnight Mr Tom Book Cover Penguin Student Design AwardThe book cover shows the two sides of William's life. The one that he spends with his mother in London, and the one that he spends with Mister Tom in Weirwold. The front cover can be viewed from the right side up or in reverse as the two sections are reflections of each other. Torn paper has been used to separate these images to create a barrier to allow the type to be displayed clearly.
