This is a student submitted design competition entry for DG magazine, featuring American graphic designer, art director, and surfer, David Carson. He is best known for his innovative magazine design, and use of experimental typography. He was the art director for the magazine Ray Gun, in which he employed much of the typographic and layout style for which he is known. In particular, his widely imitated aesthetic defined the so-called “grunge typography” era.
I really enjoyed creating this cover design, using a range of software and techniques to layer various elements and getting the desired grunge effect.
