One of the perks of creating hand-lettering is pretending that you are fluent in other languages. (I am not.)
I was recently commissioned by Internazionale magazine in Italy to create some artwork for their subscription postcard - the kind that gets stapled into the magazine and which sadly, I usually ignore.
Internazionale, if you haven't come across it on an international newsstand, compiles stories from the international press and regularly features some great cover artwork. A lot of smart solutions by Noma Bar are featured here on Cover Junkie: http://www.coverjunkie.com/magazines/390
It was a pretty straight forward job and a fun one as I was given the text and a simple brief to come up with something bright and eye-catching.
Here are my roughs and the finished artwork.
(I don't always send so many roughs, but this was a fun one come up with options for.)
