There’s hardly any band as influential to our later teenage years than The Stone Roses, and we were overjoyed to be asked to design a magazine cover and feature for their 20th anniversary.
The article came with so many amazing photo’s including many of their early baby faced days, making us wanting to squeeze as many as we could into the piece, hence the use of extra photo’s along the header strip. Throughout we tried to give a regal mood to the piece with the use of a gold color, fitting of the unique status of this legendary band.
The cover design used their famous lemon slice (scanned from an actual lemon in office), and a great classic photograph of the band. We were proud later to hear that this cover won ‘Best Magazine Cover Design’ in the ‘Lifestyle Magazine’ category of The Maggies awards.
