A Story Like The Wind is a children’s story about a small group of refugees crowded on to a boat to escape their home country. They share their stories as their boat travels across the sea, and are joined by music and tales of hope and freedom. One of the stories is of a boy who plays the violin, and the music brings such joy to the other passengers. It was important for me to include this element in the design. The curved edge of a violin reminded me of ocean waves, which was particularly appropriate. The violin motif is carried across the front cover to the back cover. Hand lettering for the title was most fitting as it was fluid like the sea, and floated like the music in the air.
