Time Out New York - Magazine Cover

Editorial Design, Hand Lettering

Time Out New York magazine asked that I design their next cover. This project was particularly interesting since I just moved out of New York City. The phrase couldn't have been more fitting: "Be Here Now."

The background image was particularly beautiful, so I wanted to make sure the final type treatment worked with the image, rather than just sitting above it. A hollow fill design was chosen to let more imagery show through on the cover.

Once the magazine was out, my friends and family from New York kept sending me pictures of them with my magazine. It was a nice way to stay connected. I couldn't help but feel that my friends back home were telling me something. To quite literally... "Be Here Now".
