Men’s mag Port goes pop this week with this colourful new cover featuring Sam Rockwell shot by Andreas Lazlo Konrath, styled by Bruce Pask and art directed and designed by Matt Willey. The headline, hand-painted by Bread Collective, is a complete departure from previous covers, as is the gradient colour (click image for larger version).
The March issue of German business title Brand Eins has this powerful cover, a visual companion piece to the recent Art Review covers featured here. The headline reads, ‘I want to know everything about you. Why?’ Brand Eins covers are consistently good, and deserve more recognition.
Design/art direction Mike Meiré and Tim Giesen.
Printed Pages, from It’s Nice That, just gets better and better. Launched last year after a period of reflection post–It’s Nice That magazine, it offers a unique voice about contemporary creative work that embellishes their online presence rather than competes with it. The new issue has more pages (130), is perfect bound, and – especially for us magaholics – reveals a new project from Bloomberg Businessweek creative director Richard Turley.
Issue two of Paris-based surf mag Acid is out this week, with plenty more surf-inspired stories. It’s more than surfing though – check the video for highlights including Nicolas Floc’h’s undersea sculptures; two isolated holidays compared; and a great piece about shoreline design. And plenty of acid blues and reds.
