MagLove: The best magazine covers this week (15 June 2017)
MediaSlut (@MediaSlut)’s choice of the best international and South African magazine covers this week:
- PM Magazine
- The Economist
- Waikiki Magazine
EDGE, July 2017
The upcoming Call of Duty is creating a lot of buzz, and with such striking (no pun intended) covers and imagery, it’s easy to see why. Call of Duty: WWII will launch on 3 November 2017.
PM Magazine, June 2017
In magazine publishing, the above is one of the biggest things that may go wrong during the printing process (and I’ve seen it happen, as it’s not always picked up by the printers…). PM has used this potential printing error to its advantage to help get its cover story, “How to cope when things go wrong”, noticed even more.
The Economist, 10 June 2017
A simple illustration that states much more than any picture or cover line ever could… The Economist looks at how “tech firms could do more to help stop the jihadists”, especially as Britain has been attacked three times in the past three months. Read the full article here.
Waikiki Magazine, June 2017
Beautiful imagery, completed by the logo forming part of the overall picture and design. Waikiki is a neighbourhood in Honolulu (Hawaii). Read the full issue here.
MagLove by @MediaSlut is a regular slot featuring the best local and international magazine covers every week, recognising well thought-out, powerful and interesting (and hopefully all three-in-one) covers and celebrating the mix of pragmatism, creativity and personal taste that created each of them. The anonymous (for now) blogger behind MediaSlut knows way too much for his own good about media in South Africa, magazines in particular. His mission is to show when SA magazines fail but, most importantly, also when they succeed. If you’re looking for a library about SA magazines and news, this is your one-stop pitstop.
