MagLove: Is it Hype?

Esquire (Spain), September 2013

Esquire Spain

Let’s face it, when you look at the history of cover models on most of our magazines, Peter Dinklage normally would not be included on the list of names that jump to mind. That is a rather sad reflection on the magazine  industry. He’s an amazing actor, and quite attractive, so I think it’s great that Esquire (Spain), is giving him the recognition and cover position he deserves, with this beautiful cover.

Interview (US), September 2013

Interview 1Interview 2Interview 3Interview 4Interview 5Interview 6Interview 7

For their September 2013 “Model Issue”, Interview (US) seems to pull out all the stops (and used up all their budget…) to get some of the top models to pose for their very own Interview cover. 7 different covers in total. The models appearing on the covers, are Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista, Christy Turlington, Amber Valetta, Daria Werbowy and Stephanie Seymour.

Thursday Magazine, 29 August 2013

Thursday magazine

You can probably read the main cover line(s) in a few different ways; “My kid is Hyperactive – Is it Hype?” or “Is my kid Hyperactive?” or “Is it Hype? – My kid is Hyperactive”. I’m not sure what the correct way is, but I think it’s a clever concept (even though a bit difficult to understand how to read it), but I’m sure it gets the message across…


My Tyd (Rapport), 25 August 2013


In celebration of Neil Sandilands’ new movie “Die Ballade van Robbie de Wee” that launched on Wednesday night at the kykNET Silwerskermfees, My Tyd (Rapport) published a cover with Neil the past Sunday that looks pretty iconic to me! All the elements, from the lighting, photography, and of course the ‘moment’ that was captured, just all comes together in this cover, with a great actor like Neil Sandilands.

OBJEKT (South Africa), Issue 4, Spring 2013

Objekt 4.1 Spring 2013

OBJEKT International (South African version) is in it’s 4th issue, and their latest cover is their best so far! It’s a simple and relatively clean image, but with strong lines everywhere you look, and with a great focus point…smack-bang in the middle of the cover.
