Great Design Makes My Art Look Better
DECEMBER 17, 2007
Caren Rosenblatt, the art director of Networker magazine, commissioned me to make this full-page illustration for the September issue. I've been working with Caren since I started out in the early 1990's, and always look forward to her assignments.
I really love how she designed this spread; the colors work well with the art, and the space that the typeface occupies balances out the car. I was pleased with the way the art turned out, and I think the way Caren handled the design really improves the illustration. Thanks, Caren!
Caren suggested the idea of a crowd of people jammed into a small space as a metaphor for fitting more and more data into smaller storage devices.
Here's the sketch.
