For the November issue of the German design magazine Novum, Hamburg-based creative agency Paperlux was commissioned to create the cover. I enjoyed their two previous sculptural covers done for Novum (find more on their website), and this one is no exception.
Inspired by the ideas of Buckminster Fuller, they embossed one thousand colored triangles to create a tangible sculptural cover which can be morphed and sculpted by the reader. Having worked in the magazine industry I know the difficulties with budgets for paper and print techniques, so I appreciate when a magazine breaks conventional methods and finds a way to do something new with the medium.
A nice making of video demonstrates their process from sketch phase to press.
