Publication design is pretty foreign territory for me as a designer. And I don’t really read magazines, so I guess that’s why you don’t see many here. But V Magazine’s approach to the use of their logo on the cover is praiseworthy for its bold scale and crisp geometry. Especially when it points right at the hooha.
This is the epitome of pretty much every cliché about tacky magazine cover design. Also, seriously Oprah, I can see putting yourself on the cover for the first year or two, but it’s been a f*cking decade! Let it go already! Give someone else a turn, you selfish brat.
What am I saying?! I must be nuts. Love you, O! Please don’t send your flying monkeys to kill or maim me.
