The first thing I remember designing in InDesign was a magazine cover mock-up. I was a sophomore in high school so naturally my subjects were the Jonas Brothers. I dubbed the glossy, Hollywood & Vine, which is probably an intersection, but I only knew of it because of a Hilary Duff lyric.
The project sparked a love of magazines and editorial design. So much so that I pursued a degree in magazines.
ANYWAY, one of my favorite things every year is the ASME Best Cover Contest. They round up the best of the best and put them to a vote for the coveted title. I’ve rifled through them and pulled out my favorites to share here.
Peep the rest of the contenders and vote for your favorites on the ASME Facebook page.
