The Creative Issue Introduction

The Creative Issue Northern Magazine Cover



This is the inevitable issue that I knew would taunt me—to come up with something over-the-top and beyond clever for a cover. Instead, we chose to do something that combined the technique of modern design: Found imagery, mashed up with a mix of traditional and digital styles to give us something beautiful yet chaotic, clean yet disastrous. This issue is for all those out there trying to put a new spin on things, while honoring the past. Thanks for reading and as always, stay in touch.
