Cover for Your Health by Gundry MD magazine issue, with a theme on the body and health.
Initial proof-of-concept mocks using existing photography to get editor buy-in. The idea is to use tear-away layers to reveal underlying information.
Post-photoshoot compositions to gauge where best to create the tear-aways.
Illustrator’s sketches with my art direction. Initially, the visuals were exploratory and comprised of florals and patterns. We settled on the idea of leafy greens because of Dr. Gundry’s emphasis on including cruciferous vegetables in the diet.
The paper tears were a visual motif used throughout the issue, not just the cover.
