For the World Cup semi-finals we have decided to make one artwork for the two-day match and cut them half for each day. A pretty clever idea i must say! So my task was to come up with the artwork.
As for the style of the illustration, my design director took inspiration from Cleon Peterson's works. We all agreed that it was a good direction and would definitely make sense. We wanted to a bloody battle, almost merciless. Using only limited colors representing the each teams.
July 8 magazine cover
July 9 magazine cover
This is the original artwork with the bleed
And then this is what happens if you put the two magazine covers together! :)
