Join a leading line-up of graphic designers, editors, and creative directors for a discussion on the importance of magazine covers today.

What are the components of a ground-breaking magazine cover? And what real impact do these covers have on our everyday lives?

A magazine’s cover embodies the collaboration between editors, artists, designers and writers. The most powerful covers surprise, spark debate, confront taboos, hold public figures to account, and provide a voice that is often ignored by the mainstream. In today’s era of social media, where information is consumed and shared at a rapid pace, print covers still hold a tremendous amount of value and prestige. These covers capture and preserve key moments in time and create space for readers to reflect, question and debate.

Join a panel of experts including graphic designers, editors, and creative directors for a discussion on the art of magazine design. The panel will reflect on compelling covers across a range of titles that have given agency to issues as varied as the civil rights movement and the Vietnam war to the Trump presidency and Brexit.

This talk coincides with the launch of ‘Uncovered: Revolutionary Magazine Covers’, a new book by Ian Birch.
