Vasco Colombo admires:
Coverjunkie asked great art director Vasco Colombo about the 3 magazine covers that are so good he wished he designed them himself:
3 covers Vasco admires:
1. Bloomberg Businessweek: "Simple, strong, smart. Bloomberg Businessweek covers are a great example of how often huge budgets aren't needed when you have brilliant ideas and you're not afraid to take risks!"
2. New York Times Magazine: "Amazing cover. You can hardly get more minimalist than this, and yet I can't remember any other recent cover that made me have such a strong emotional reaction."
3. Andy Warhol's Interview on the 70 and 80's:" The Interview covers from the70's and 80's had an iconic quality that you can hardly find nowadays. Though being strictly aestetically driven and sometimes a bit kitsh, truth is their strenght gives them a timeless feel."
About Vasco Colombo:

He designs the fabulous designed and awardwinning UP magazine... take a look at those covers and watch the great designed logo, it changes every time, it doesn't get any better than that on aesthetics levels.
