Little White Lies issue 48


I was asked to be the first ever guest art director of the award winning film magazine Little White Lies.

Each issue takes it’s inspiration from one film, in this case it was the utopian/dystopian sci-fi Elysium by South African director Neil Blomkamp.

I designed a typeface based on markings on the exoskeleton Matt Damon’s character wears in the film. This was used throughout the magazine along with letters based on exoskeletons.

Printed with spot day-glo green and spot UV on the cover.
