Gold, Silvers and Bronze For WORTH Magazine!

NOVEMBER 28, 2012
A big thanks to the judges of the 2012 Folio Awards for selcting three of our Worth Magazine covers to receive the Gold, Silver and Bronze Medals for Best Cover.
And also, thanks goes to The Art Director's Club for selecting two additional Worth Covers for a Silver Cube. 
Numbering 22 issues (and counting) this ongoing series has been the most challenging and satisfying of my career. I would like to especially thank the folks at Worth Magazine and Sandow Media who have made it their goal to approach the publishing of print magazines on their own terms and often against the grain.  In a world of magazines that try too hard to be everything to everyone and fail becuase of it, the publisher, Adam Sandow, has revived and retooled many dying and out-moded brands, turning them into world-class and profitable publications by simultaneously knowing and defining his readership. 
Of course non of this would be possible without an amazing team of visual communicators.  I want to thank Creative Director Dean Sebring, Senior AD  Michael Shavalier, Assistant AD's Pam Shavalier and Valerie Sebring (That's right, dual husband and wife teams).  While keeping minds wide-open, these folks have pushed for and helped to take things to a level that forces me out of my comfort zone and into new territory.  They've gained a level of trust, appreciation, and respect from their editors and publisher alike that is rare in the profession.  I was lucky enough to be around to benefit from it.
Sincere thanks, all. 
GOLD Medal: Folio Awards

Silver Medal: Folio Awards This cover was produced as a split run cover with a male version facing (see ADC below). Both covers were printed with solid metallic gold ink backgrounds with the silhouetted figure being printed with a gloss varnish.

Bronze Medal: Folio Awards This cover was also a mix of gold metallic ink printed in the crown vector lines with gloss varnish over birds on flat black background

Thanks to fellow illustrator Richard Borge for being there to receive this for me!
