Here are 3 new covers I’ve created for Creative Review – plus lots of imagery of the work in process that got me there. All created by hand – no digital.
For the “Truth & Lies” Issue I wanted to create an aesthetic that looked like the cover could be peeled back to reveal hidden meanings underneath. I screenprinted onto old wallpaper, MDF, parts of an actual door even – redacting and covering up parts of the type and imagery with gaffer tape and foamboard. I also printed onto a glass (which I then smashed) as I wanted to hint at the concept of information being readily available and transparent while simultaneously destroying it.
