Monmouth Magazine cover


Cover for Monmouth University magazine

Topic was climate change. Here's the roughs I sent to the design firm, Dog Ear Consultants. I felt the iceberg globe coming apart coming apart had the most graphic potential so I developed it just a little but further the other roughs. Patrick the AD on this agreed, so we went with that one.

Normally I sent the AD a tight color sketch before going to final but it wasn't necessary in this case because the ice had to be a cool white and the ocean a cool color, either blue or blue-green.

The only color to fiddle with was to make the polar a warm off-white to pop him a bit.

And the design firm must have liked it, because they use it on their main website to highlight their work for Monmouth University. Thanks Patrick!
