The new spring issue of Garden Making
is scheduled to hit newsstands on February 28, 2011. This reader-centric gardening title celebrates spring and its first anniversary.
Here’s how art director Gary Hall sums up this cover:
“A spring cover of a gardening magazine should portray optimism. This is the time of year when we are all craving the outdoors and a chance to be in our gardens. The crabapple blossoms are a breath of fresh air, and present the reader with an eye-catching image. By playing off the delicate forms and colours of the blossoms, the cover’s colour palette combines a lyrical headline treatment with a wide selection of practical and enticing cover lines to reinforce this sense of optimism. The result is a cover that provides the reader with a striking visual statement on the possibilities for the coming season.”
The issue is being promoted aggressively nation wide, with many of Canada’s top magazine retailers.
