Andrew Horton on his cover design: "My philosophy on covers has always been a simple one: idea beats execution. The most beautifully-realized design doesn't work as well for this magazine as the cleverest, boldest image and headline. BusinessWeek is a magazine of analysis and ideas as much as it is about news breaking, and I feel the magazine is at its best when the cover reflects that. Every single one of these covers started on either my sketch pad or on a napkin at wherever I ate lunch that day."
