Elle magazine releases fully embroidered cover as part of redesign
_Elle_ has released a fully embroidered cover for its September issue as part of the magazine’s redesign. Created by Claire Barrett, founder of London-based embroidery company "Hawthorne & Heaney":http://www.londonhandembroidery.com/, the magazine cover is a minimal ivory-white fabric with stitched logo. The artwork is simply a sewn-on patch, similar to a clothing label, stating “Now what?” in embroidered capitalised type alongside the bar code.
I can't get tired looking at beautiful and simple compositions. More and more the web is bringing back the classic principles of good graphic design with attention to typography and grid systems. Besides that it seems that the web is graduating from the phase where everything should be above the fold, where density is better than well organized and spaced out compositions.
