Behind the February Cover
Maybe we should have an intern who just works on education metaphors, because we seem to need at least one a year. After two rounds with an outside designer who decided he wasn’t right for us, various holidays, and three days of full-tilt art-department energy, the dust finally settled, and we went with the clearest direction. The simplicity of a young student sitting at his desk resonated with us, especially when paired with the cover line, the font, and the nod to the primary tablet paper in the background. The absence of a classroom spoke to the potential for new ideas in the design of schools.
