A political beast

As the latest issue of Plan-B Studio’s Project 10 magazine dropped through our letter box this week, the Design Week team were greeted with a somewhat frightening sight.

Sam Gilbey’s illustration for this politically-themed issue features the overlapping of the faces of Brown, Cameron and Clegg that creates the impression of a three-headed leader – think Cerberus but with a tie.

Despite the nightmarish possibilities of the magazine’s cover, the rest of the content proved a little less distressing. Andy Barefoot reflects on the popularity of his make your own David Cameron poster, Form’s Paula Benson typesets a poem by Hollie McNish about voter apathy and Alice Ross picks apart the Conservative Party’s logo.

The magazine is part of Plan-B Studio’s tenth anniversary celebrations and is contributed to by the studio’s friends and peers from a number of creative backgrounds. With a little help from the Newspaper Club, 100 limited-edition issues were sent to design industry types, but it’s also available online to browse through, here. Just don’t have nightmares.
