Akira is one of the most influential pieces of sci-fi material. It heavily inspires me so I created a collector's set of the mangas. I started by creating a responsive wordmark that became more grotesque as the series went on which conceptually ties to one of the main characters, Tetsuo becoming more grotesque physically and mentally as the story went on. As the book cover goes on, it starts to transition from red to black, and when you line up the spine, you see the iconic pill that is a big part of the iconography of the series.
