Noma Bar has done it again !

Cover of Time Out London magazine

Cover of Time Out London magazine

Over the years, I have tried to familiarize myself with the different styles, techniques, and works of famous/professional graphic designers. Personally, one graphic artist I have come to admire is Noma Bar. I am always amazed at how successful his minimalistic vector illustrations are at conveying a powerful message. Yesterday, I stumbled upon a magazine cover he recently designed for Time Out London and was reminded of how much I appreciate his talent. In this design, Noma relies on the interaction between the iconic silhouette of “Big Ben” with the surrounding negative space to create a more provocative illustration of sex. I associate his work with the exhilarating experience of discovering the image within the image and I love how he cleverly illustrates such complex social topics with a hidden twist of humor. While ultimately this image was not used on the cover, it was featured on the inside of the magazine as an illustration for the main article. Do you think this would of been appropriate to use as a magazine cover ?
