Financial Mail, 6 July 2017

These clever buggers! FinancialMail has produced another great cover illustrating its cover story brilliantly! The article delves into the history of Cell C’s problems, and asks whether Blue Label (“South Africa’s largest distributor of prepaid airtime and starter packs for mobile operators”) could possibly save it the 15-year-old mobile network operator…

Everything about this latest cover just oozes luxury, style and quality! Great work!


ProCycling, July 2017

ProCycling, July 2017 - Chris Froome

ProCycling, Europe’s no. 1 cycling magazine, features Chris Froome, three-time Tour de France winner (and two-time Olympic medalist from the London and Rio Olympics) on its latest cover — a winner on every level!


TIME, 26 June 2017

TIME, 26 June 2017 - Travis Kalanick

Over the past few months, Uber (and, more specifically, former CEO Travis Kalanick) has been in the news again and again, and TIME’s illustration — inspired by the transport app’s iconic interface — is on point.

MediaSlutMagLove 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.
