The tasty brilliance of Cookie magazine

The tasty brilliance of Cookie magazine

Children's/parents magazine Cookie debuted in November 2005, and left the Earth in October
2009. In that four-year run they established a look that was both playful and elegant, funky and chic, with tightly-refined typography and state-of-the-art illustration and photography. Design director Kirby Rodriguez and his art and photo crew were high-level smart in their approach to magazine-making.

And we always loved that multi-colored logo that looked like a mash up of refrigerator magnets and....cookies.

Here's a collection of covers, feature section openers and feature spreads that reprises the beautiful (and oftentimes award-winning) Cookie look. Special thanks to Kirby Rodriguez and photo editor Darrick Harris for pulling together this collection.
