I was commissioned by Orchard Wall Publishing to create the ebook cover and some digital banner ads for The Sea and the Silence, a novel set across the decades following Ireland’s newly won independence.
The lighthouse is metaphorically a symbol of safely and beacon of hope amidst a turbulent sea. In this image, the lighthouse has been inverted (reflected in the sea) suggesting the turmoil (both political and personal) taking place throughout the book. Presenting the symbol as a mirror image is also suggestive of how certain themes in the book mirror each other through history and evokes the circularity of the story.
