Have you feasted your eyes on this amazing-ness?! For his Thesis Project, designer Mikey Burton developed this integrated branding campaign of redesigned classic book covers targeted toward junior high school students. The new-covers-design-for-old-book concept is not new, however I am smitten with these. Definitely sme of the most original and eye-catching ones I've seen.  I love his somewhat gritty illustration style being applied to classic titles like 'Lord of the Flies' and 'The Great Gatsby.' The result is downright awesome. In fact I think these will all soon be available for purchase as art prints (The Outsiders print is already in his shop) And don't forget to check out the rest of his work for an extra dose of inspiration.
