Traditional Chalk Cover Art - 4.5' x 5.5'
I had an amazing time working on this lovely magazine cover that consisted of 100% traditional chalk for Orlando Magazines Dinning Awards issue.
Since this was the dining issue they wanted a fully illustrated chalk cover. After being given a list of articles and featured guests I started crafting the cover.
Sketching ideas and putting them on paper is always instrumental. It allows me to think out loud and see what might work and what won't, narrowing elements down to place into design ideas.
The Idea Behind The Design
When I think of Orlando I instantly think of the iconic Lake Eola fountain. The cover design was based on the fact we are serving up Orlando's finest dining spots which was illustrated by serving up Lake Eola on a platter. Two design ideas were created to present before the design team. Both can be seen below. One illustrating the fountain with the other showcasing a line-up of the magazines Emmy styled food trophy.
