Wallpapers cover design
The latest copy of wallpaper magazine caught my eye with its unique cover designs. Guest edited by Karl Lagerfield and Philippe Starck the October magazine has two versions of the same issue, Lagerfield’s cover deisgn features the fashion designer’s muse, model Baptise Giabiconi, dressed in Dior Homme, readers can then peel off this image to reveal another showing the model without any clothes on. Starck’s issue has three layers of transparent tracing paper, each with an image representing a different stage of evolution. Absolut Vodka has also produced a double layered ad for the outside back cover. Both covers are ambitious and well deigned and its obvious that they have taken to the challenge and stepped outside their comfort zones and is a great achievement of creative and technical skills.
