Not nearly as major an issue as previous ‘How similar is similar’ posts, but worth noting anyhow for its audacity. On the left is the June issue of British Vogue, and on the right the August issue of Good Housekeeping. I can’t tell if Vogue‘s cover had the yellow and pink colouring added at pre-press, but I’m pretty certain the Good Housekeeping cover did.
Nothing wrong with picking up an idea that works – magazine editors and designers are always looking at other publications. But neither is there anything wrong in pointing it out when spotted.
