Did you have much creative freedom with this brief?
Yes, aside from having to feature the work of the Creative Leaders across the length of 3-4 covers, the rest was open for me to go wild.
What materials were you provided with to get a feel for the topics/case studies/people in the magazine?
I was fortunate enough to visit Rob Ryan at his Ryantown studio for a cup of tea and to select off cuts, stencils, proofs and original drawings to use in the artwork.
Alice Tonge (head of 4Creative) also sent me a small padded case containing the blocks of the Channel 4 logo (used in their programme fillers) which I incorporated into the final piece.
Other batches of images, photos and stills from adverts were sent to me to print out - and I could read the relevant articles on the CR website to familiarise myself. There were a few issues with rights which meant Jonas Bendiksen’s Magnum Photos weren’t useable. A lot of mount board, removable tape, blue tack, scape blades & glue sticks came into action.
