Leftlion Magazine


With the country in lockdown, Nottingham's largest independent magazine Leftlion put a call out to creatives to design the cover of their next issue as a competition. I designed a couple of concepts and ended up winning the competition. 


My final design was partly inspired by my daughter’s trousers coupled with all the rainbows that started appearing in household windows at the time. Many children were off school and were showing solidarity with the community and support for the NHS with their artwork. In lockdown we were all living on our own little islands and I wanted to communicate this isolation and created a vector-style front cover with illustrations. The cover proved so popular I printed up a batch of posters that people all over the UK could keep as a memento of this strange moment in our lives.
