The artist SO-ME illustrated the cover and spreads for the current COMPLEX magazine cover feature on R&B singer Kari Hilson. Good to see the use of illustration and handmade, imperfect design being put to great use here. In a way this type of direction is not new in the sense that there's been a move back toward the tactile, tangible, handmade and non-computer aided design approach for a few years now. And it has been, for the most, for the better of the creative and design work coming out. Look again, doesn't the above make you feel better- like a kid scribbling outside the lines just because you can? You know, like you used to do when you were a hobbit sized little one with a fist full of Crayolas. Can't see enough of work like this and other approaches that utilize various, seemingly, handmade techniques.
