Today I wanted to share with you the making of a magazine cover
in collaboration with the talented Ceci Johnson of Ceci NewYork.
This is one of two finished pieces I created
for the cover of Cecil New York Style Magazine.
Thisbe Grace Photography along with a list of spring phrases to choose from.
The phrases were listed in order of appeal to the issue’s message, theme and inspiration.
Some of the phrases included the following: Beauty in bloom,
The best time for new beginnings is now, Live life in bloom.
and used tracing paper and pen and ink, gouache paint and
brush markers to try out some possible layouts and lettering styles.
to send to the client. At this point, no color choices had been made yet for the lettering.
and asked for a few edits.
In this case the edits involved adding more flourishes to come off the letters and intersect with her head.
She deferred to me for the color choice.
I chose a cross between the flower stem and her eye for the lettering color.
“Hello Sunshine” was made to match the green stem to allow it to stand out more.
The vertical portrait lettering (in the pic at the top) was done in all white to better work with the background.
It also allows the “Ceci Style” logo (in green to match the leaves) to stand out.
It was such a pleasure to work with Ceci and her team on this fun collaboration!
And I appreciate their continued support and use of my fonts in their extraordinary work.
Delight in your day!
