What it is: A piece of art that covers a magazine called CMYK, which is great to read for ideas, information, and tips in graphic design. Its Function: Is to draw the attention of a reader that might pick up the magazine. Where I saw it: Actually I went to Barnes and Noble to purchase HOW magazine, another art design mag, and ended up buying this along with it. Design and Typography: The actual design of the cover page would be a psychedelic era style, you can tell by the curvy type and forms. Also the colors hint to the era as well, bright, eye popping, smooth colors. Quality: Well the quality is amazing, I mean, how could it not be and be on a cover of a magazine. I love the colors along with the crazy design, just like any other psychedelic piece. Each curve serves its purpose by drawing your eye to the center, the number 51, which is the issue number. The idea of incorporating the issue number to the center of the art itself was very interesting. Overall I love this piece of art, and please read the CMYK magazine, you wont be disappointed.
