Chance Encounters On The Magazine Rack
This is just a quick reminder that as graphic designers, we would be very foolish to think that anything we do gives us any control over our visual surroundings, or helps "fight ugliness".

They feature chance encounters between unrelated magazine covers creating new unexpected readings. I hope you have as much fun discovering them as I had.

PC World (left) intensively uses Interstate by Tobias Frere-Jones; MacWorld adopted the inescapable Gotham by Hoefler and – indeed – Frere-Jones. Could there be an extra layer of meaning referring to Tobias' move to H&FJ in 2004? ;)
The other image, posted to the SPD blog by JoshKlenert, proves that
