SHOP Magazine cover illustrations
Next week London's Kemistry Gallery will showcase a selection of the SHOP Magazine's 2011 cover artwork commissioned from a host of illustrators including Adrian Johnson (a cover illustration by Johnson for a London issue shown above), Pietari Posti, The Heads Of State, Nathalie Lees, and Robert Hanson...
SHOP Magazine, art directed by Studio8, is the world's leading shopping publication - publishing a whopping 3.8 million magazines in 78 editions across 28 countries.The week long exhibition in London will celebrate this year's cover artwork across the title's many editions. Here are a few of our favourite images:
by The Heads of State for Singapore
by Adrian Johnson for London
by Brett Ryder for Portugal
by Pietari Posti for Istanbul
by Nathalie Lees (for Copenhagen)
Limited edition prints of the illustrations are on sale at the show and via print-process.com (where you can see more of the work) and profits will go to Kids Company, a London-based charity which provides education and support for vulnerable inner-city children.
SHOP Magazine Cover Illustrations runs from 21-26 November at Kemistry Gallery, 43 Charlotte Road, London EC2A 3PD.
CR in Print
Not getting Creative Review in print too? You're missing out.
In print, Creative Review carries far richer, more in-depth articles than we run here on the blog. This month, for example, we have nine pages on Saul Bass, plus pieces on advertising art buyers, Haddon Sundblom, the illustrator who ensured that Coke will forever be linked with Santa Claus, Postmodernism, Brighton's new football ground and much more. Plus, it's our Photography Annual, which means an additional 85 pages of great images, making our November issue almost 200-pages long, the biggest issue of CR for 5 years.
If you would like to buy this issue and are based in the UK, you can search for your nearest stockist here. Based outside the UK? Simply call +44(0)207 292 3703 to find your nearest stockist. Better yet, subscribe to CR for a year here and save yourself almost 30% on the printed magazine.
Nice work, but I honestly thought Shop magazine was a Monocle Magazine supplement - All of these illustrators have been used in Monocle too. Is it published by Monocle? Is the typeface the same as Monocle too? Hope the exhibition goes well.
...I'll be your DOG!!!
Lovely illustrations and great art direction by the guys at Studio8. All profits going to a brilliant cause as well — Kids Company, a London-based charity which provides education and support for vulnerable inner-city children. Perfect.
great stuff, nice and simple
Lovely to see illustration used so well. Great Art Direction
Fantastic charity, they do amazing work.
I will definitely go to the exhibition and break open my piggy bank.
The Pietari Posti for Istanbul is sumptuous. Absolutely gorgeous.
SHOP is published by Global Blue. The illustrators are great, they have all done really amazing stuff for other magazines too!
Some very clever idea's of how to incorporate the themes into a fashion product. They look very classic will most probably have the same impact in 20 years time.
