Ideas and Idees magazine has set the bar so high with regards to their amazing covers, than when something falls below this standard, it’s easily spotted. But there’s just something about their latest February 2014 cover that doesn’t just drop the standard below their level, but makes it just a poorly executed cover. If you go through my archive of their previous covers, you’ll see what I mean.
When I look at this cover, it looks to me like she visited this market at 02:00 in the morning, in the middle of a random field, to go an buy her Double Choc Chip Muffins… The black is just too harsh, and seems very unrealistic.
Not sure what happened here, but I hope March 2014 bring back their amazingly-creative-crafty-covers…
