Observer Food Monthly 50 Typographic Front Cover

A chance to support your favorites restaurant, Instagram feed and more, the OFM 50 lists the best cheap eats and bars nationwide, as well as celebrated chefs and food personalities. It’s the only awards where you’ll find a neighborhood butcher, producer or deli alongside a Nigel Slater or Nigella Lawson. The cover illustration commission illustrated typographically created from the article headlines. The headlines illustrated with different hand-drawn type styles crafted to snugly fit around the main photographic cover image of Rosio Sanchez. The initial sketch focused on the composition of the heading text from each article and working on how the headings will fit together cohesively to work together as one whole typographic illustration. Once the rough composition was work on the heading text was sketched into place and roughly organised so that all the headings and word fitted into the spaces. Different hand-drawn typefaces were drawn to differentiate the heading text from each other and to enhance the readability as much as possible.
