Damon Albarn

Photographed by David Bailey. Albarn has been all over the British mags, but we’ve got the sweetest pic. Shot by David Bailey a month ago, there’s a reflective depth to his gaze. Or he’s hungover, which he cops to in the interview.

Spider-Man…

and other blockbusters. But mostly Spider-Man. Since we have a wrap this week, our cover needed to be different than a big Spidey hero photo. Which is a tough task since I only had supplied art. The solution was to make a it a bit more playful than a battle with Electro. Although I can’t imagine the hand winning.

Follow that Car

A book I designed made an appearance in a magazine I used to art direct. Matthew Love just won’t let me leave the City.

And it’s a damn funny book: http://goo.gl/N1ZFVn

Not London!

Being the annual weekend getaways issue, I was relieved that the edit crew cooked up a line with a bit of attitude. All I needed to do was drop in a bucolic backdrop and a town crest with tea drinking unicorns and lions. If I was looking to get away within the UK, Lynton would be a pretty sweet spot.

Who is?

I have no idea. That’s the fun of designing some weeks. I didn’t have time to read the feature before making the cover, so my fingers are crossed that the answers are inside. I wanted to funk up the type a bit, but the length of the headline made me opt for legibility over swirly letterforms.

MUPPETS TAKE OVER!

This week’s TOL is all about the Muppets. They’ve taken over several parts of the mag and as their primary spokesman, Kermit is the cover. Soft, cuddly and 1:1 scale.

Tina Fey

is the interview in this week’s Time Out London and New York issues. With a limited number of options for images, I decided a green dress perfect for the quote headline. That and Tina Fey approval.
