The 2010 Fortune 500 Cover
The new issue of the Fortune 500
hits the streets on Friday, April 16. Art directed by John Korpics
, it features a sparkling cover by illustrator Daniel Pelavin
. We love the retro feel of this one. Pelavin's hand-drawn letterforms harken back to the great Fortune 500 covers of the 50s and 60s. Pelavin has a great behind-the-scenes how-I-did-it explanation of the cover up on his Drawger blogsite
. There are lots of cool sketches, and a nifty series of iterations of the 5 showing how it evolved from looking too much like an S.
You can see the complete run of Fortune 500 covers from 1956-present here, with brilliant designs by Leo Lionni, Walter Allner, and more.
