You Can Now front covers
The fourth issue of YCN’s You Can Now magazine is out, with another smart cover illustration by Nathalie Lees. The magazine is one of several independents covering design and creativity (think also Works That Work, Printed Pages) from new angles and this issue doesn’t disappoint. Sarah Snaith visits brand guru Michael Wolff at home, photographer Nick Ballon shares a new project based on Bolivian architecture and there’s a set of smaller columns spinning off to unexpected areas. Art director Alex Hunting is developing Matt Willey’s original design nicely, with strong typography and good commissioning.
But I keep coming back to those covers, they have a classic confidence to them, as if the mag has been around forever, and they’ve built into a really smart set. The first one was by Ed Nacionale, the others all by Lees.
See the set after the jump.
