If we was ever to have our own publication in the future, I’d come back to the very first design laid out, ever. Regardless of having a thinking design team, I’d go back to the very beginning; when it was just us. Sort of like a tribute to how it all started.
Here is our first cover design in the development stages. I’m going for a Noir themed design. I feel a little skeptical about the headline/logo text. The composition may be kearned to close compromising the space between “Keep and it” and “it and Surreal.”
