The Making of The NY Times Magazine’s Trump Cover


This amazingly simple, straightforward (and subjective) cover for The New York Times Magazine features a Donald Trump balloon displaying a portrait illustration by Stanley Chow photographed by Jamie Chung. Created to highlight their cover story on Trump by Mark Liebovich, this expertly executed image serves as the perfect example of bravery, collaboration and vision on the part of the entire creative team.

Design Director Gail Bichler shared a few intriguing behind-the-scenes photos on Twitter today of that great helium balloon being created.

Thanks to Gail Bichler for sharing some of the work in progress shots. Follow her on Twitter here.
