Vasco Colombo fav #2
It's always fun to hear great art-directors talk about their favorite magazine covers.
This month Coverjunkie asked Vasco Colombo about the favorite covers he designed himself.
About Vasco Colombo:
Partner and design director (along with Raquel Porto) at + 2 designers in Lisbon, Portugal. 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.
Vasco's most favorite designed covers
Favorite #2: UP Pantanal Cover:
"In Pantanal — a Brazilian swamp area the size of France — you can find a huge variety of different animals: aligators, tarantulas, piranhas, snakes, and so on. But birds are the most exuberant you can find there. We decided to work the hair to recreate a weird bird with its colours and textures. The handwriting — inspired by Peter Beard's wondeful work — gives the cover a field sketchbook approach that suits perfectly the mood you find in Pantanal."
