Sharing ideas.

But changing the signage.

F*#K YEAH!

As I wind down my time at Time Out, I’m finding all sorts of silly bits. Here’s a cover from a few weeks back that never happened because it was a bit too obnoxious. Shame, because I was hoping to round out my profanity cover trilogy. (The Kick-ass Motherfucking and C-word covers were career highlights)

Russell Brand spreads…

What do you do with a dull press image, part two. Easy: Same as the cover.

Russell Brand’s REVOLUTION

What do you do when you’ve got a great interview with boring press images? Create an army. Distress the best image. Distract with a tilting of the logo.

Top chefs.

On the left is a cover I loved designing back in 2007. The cover on the right is from 2013. I’m happy to see it’s still got legs in the Time Out community.

The A to Z of cool…

It’s exciting to see an image that I’ve created used throughout the Time Out network. Even when it’s melting fast or a random piece of cardboard I ripped.

A tea for Daniel Craig.

I just came across two of the sillier cover ideas I had for a 2012 Bond cover.¬† Since I only had a generic photo to work with, the final cover was him in the Bond Street tube station as Roger Moore’s train pulled into the station.

Cumberbatch’s spread…

Dale May was able to scout some fantastic props for the shoot in Toronto. Which meant that the opening feature spread was a perfect¬†complement to the rest of the issue’s London Film Festival coverage.

Cumberbatch.

Dale May did a fantastic job shooting Benedict Cumberbatch in Toronto for the new TOL cover. Which makes it an easy and striking cover to design.

Reworking a logo (in 30 minutes or less)

Last week I had the chance to rework a logo for Time Out Paris. The original plan was the top logo. I got involved when it was sent over to me for last minute approval. I’m sure the designer loved the idea of the letter A upside down and was trying REALLY hard to make it work, but it doesn’t read. Toss in some extra ornamentation and it’s a struggle to figure out what it’s about. So it fell to me to knock out several other ideas, figuring one of them would fly with the editors in Paris. The bottom is the final approved version. Not the best of the group, but at least you can read it. (I’d pick the bottom left one as my favorite)
