Award: Wood Pencil

Wood Pencil / Magazine & Newspaper Design / Magazine Front Covers / 2017

The Gentlewoman is renowned for its covers which, with each new issue, are greeted with tremendous anticipation by its readers. The distinctive colourful frame, Futura logo and intimate portrait of the season’s cover star makes The Gentlewoman an instantly recognisable feature on newsstands, with each cover defining the issue’s editorial character and becoming highly collectible among readers.

Solution & Cultural Context:
