Wallpaper* Work Issue Front Covers

Award: Wood Pencil

Wood Pencil / Magazine & Newspaper Design / Magazine Front Covers / 2009

Four covers were produced for Wallpaper* magazine's first ever work-themed issue, using bold, striking type, with their own slogans: 'Work is Play'; 'Work More Live More'; 'Work Hard and Be Nice to People'; and 'Play and Work and Play'. Typical of Burrill’s style, the covers were an apt continuation of his cult 'Work Hard' poster. The four collectable covers also used an experimental matt printing technique to further the tactility and individuality of each issue. The issue was launched at the International Contemporary Furniture Fair in New York and the four covers were used to striking effect as part of the window displays in Bergdorf Goodman on Fifth Avenue.
