Novum is a notorious german magazine about graphic design. Every issue is dedicated to a certain theme and how it relates to design culture. We were lucky enough to work with the word "music" and translate it into a cover artwork for the issue. We decided to reflect on similairities between composing & our craft and how both musicians and designers give voice to their ideas by transforming desparate elements into a structured body.
Chords wrapped around the magazine represent the chaotic nature of a creative process and ambivalent nature of creative process: to mess things up one must learn to put them in order first.
