For Wallpaper*‘s forthcoming August issue (The Handmade Issue) the magazine is encouraging its readers to design their own bespoke cover using a nifty online design-it-yourself app.
Users of the app will be able to play around (rotate, resize and colour or pattern) a host of shapes, illustrations and typographic assets supplied by James Joyce, The Hort, Anthony Burrill, Kam Tang, and Nigel Robinson.
We’ve had a go and were really impressed by the online design app. And, truth be told, our minds boggle at the mere thought of the logistical wizardry that Wallpaper* must have masterminded to be able to promise to print, bind and deliver a copy of the magazine sporting the appropriately self-designed cover to each user / subscriber…
Here are some screengrabs of us playing around with the app and designing a cover – which we look forwrard to seeing in print when the issue arrives in a month or two:
