For this book cover redesign, I focused on two themes: the relationship between Tyler and the Narrator, and the love story (possible triangle) with Marla Singer. Using modern color theory, I implemented the complimentary color pair red - cyan to convey the idea that these two people create the strongest contrast when paired, and cancel each other out when combined (with Marla's coloring alluding to a plot point in the story - no spoilers!). The synopsis is simply a warning from the book. When told not to talk about something, a person then wants to know everything there is about that taboo subject.
