Gebrauchsgraphik / Novum Magazine was first published in 1924 and is one of the oldest running graphic design magazines to date. For their 95th anniversary birthday Novum decided to ask 6 designers to reinterpret one of the 1,000 covers that have been published between 1924 and now. I was honored to be one of those designers.

I chose issue number 2 from 1924. The theme of the issue was tobacco and design. That particular issue was full of very kitschy gold foil stamped, ‘tipped-in' labels. Which was in total contrast with the “George Grosz-like” whimsical cover.
