The best restaurant in London is…

Chiltern Firehouse. Since there’s been a run of jokey covers, we decided to go for a more straightforward image to represent the number one pick. And their crab cake donuts are pretty spectacular.

Fox or badger?

That was the discussion in the office yesterday. We had two fun illustrations by Yago Partal and needed to pick a winner. The fox edged out the badger because he was more colorful and more familiar in the wilds of London.

A Stylist homage.

When I was cooking up ideas for an animal cover, I pitched this as a fun homage to a Stylist cover I’ve always loved. The final TOL cover ended up being cooler than the growling cat, but I’m sad this didn’t happen. Just to see if anyone would have noticed.

Call yourself a Londoner?

This week’s TOL is a list of the 101 coolest things to do around town. Well, some aren’t massively cool. But who doesn’t have a soft spot for the Eye? The original plan was the coverline Are you a real Londoner? But since we’re putting it out onto all the platforms, better to keep it as SEO friendly as possible.

Which Sci-fi film makes the best logo?

Over the past few weeks I’ve been working on logos and design elements for a TOL BCP on Sci-fi films. After a slew of logos, it came down to the Delaurian and ET.

The moon won.

Courier.

This week it’s the cheap issue. And thanks to a late night brainstorm by the chief subs editor, the cover has a manifesto about how little we tried. But how much we care.

All night long.

Time Out does an all night/late night cover about once a year. Which means there are already covers with neon lights, dark skylines and candles burning at both ends. But there’s never been a big Lionel Richie head. And I can’t resist a silly cover.

Reusage is the sincerest form of flattery

This week’s SEVEN magazine used images from December’s Time Out shoot with Martin Freeman. Time Out syndicates photos through an agency so I see various ones reprinted in other publications. But this week it was a nearly identical cover. And a very similar image choice for the feature. Sadly, without his oversized Hobbit feet.
