Neville Brody has designed the subscriber cover for the August issue of Wallpaper* – a coded reference to his feelings about his work
“I wanted to create something subsersive,” says Brody in the issue. “Something that seems raw and takes time to work through.” So, can you tell what it is yet?
Brody came up with two alternative cover ideas for the issue that were not used. You can see them here
Brody also designed a typeface for the magazine’s Design Directory section – Peace 2. The face “started with Peace and Love, a project I did in 2003,” Brody says. He created a stencil font, Peace, based on the Tate + Lyle logo, a contentious choice given that the company has combined an industrial past rooted in Empire with the founding of a major cultural institution, Tate Gallery.
The original face was used on a poster for the V&A. Peace 2, apparently, “smooths out the original’s sharp edges and adds a lower case version,” acccording to Jonathan Bell’s piece in Wallpaper*.
