Creating the characters for the covers I was inspired by the dancers from Oskar Schlemmer's Triadic Ballet at the Bauhaus (1926).
I wanted to achieve something simple and eye-catching, both throuhg the cut-out shapes and vivid colors.
Here are some initial ideas for the illustrations.
Finally we decided that even the scary characters must look a bit friendly, so my Vogons are not as disgusting as you imagine them. And that's ok.
