Wired x Heatherwick Studio
A quick break from holiday to share the new cover of Wired UK, published this week. It’s been developed in collaboration with designer Thomas Heatherwick and his studio (Heatherwick also features on the front cover, shot by Olaf Blecker). Art director Andrew Diprose explains, ‘Heatherwick wanted something textural and hand-made’ and the result is a a soft touch varnish with a high-gloss splatter pattern across it, reflecting the issue’s focus on materials and making. I haven’t had a chance to touch it yet, but I want to. Heatherwick has also curated a feature on ‘makers’, and the stencil typography is by Studio Oswald.
