The Art of Illustrative Journalism

July 30th, 2012

Illustrative journalism is a pretty big deal in my playbook. When I was a kid, my grandfather would subscribe to a different magazine every year and I’d fall in love again every January.

Art directing a story isn’t a simple task and the creative minds in charge of hiring talent  always amaze me. Much like the power of a good book cover, a great illustration tells multiple narratives.

Above are a few selected images from last week’s New York Times. We have I Love Dust, Adam Hayes and Josh Cochran. These artists have created texture and depth using an assigned storyline. Personally I love the busyness of it all- do these work for you?
