Chalk one up for Cincinnati magazine
The March 2012 issue of Cincinnati magazine is hot.

This innovative cover from the liitle C market can show those big city A market magazines how it’s done.

While the Where to Eat theme is a steady staple with the city magazine genere, very few art directors ever go beyond hiring a food stylist to air brush a burger. 

This cover dared to think big, and was willing to even “chalk board” their logo, to create an eye-catching and sophisticated cover treatment that communincates quickly, clearly and creatively. That’s fun and gutsy!

And on a persoanl note, if you ever go to Cincinnati, my favourite bar in North America is the Blind Lemon in Mt. Adams. Don’t forget a dose of Skyline Chilli (3 way) and a chili dog, no onion, no mustard. Plus, the mint chocolate chip ice cream at Greaters is the best in the world.
