Client: Affinity by Serif
In 2020 Affinity launched a contest, "100 days 100 commissions", where they selected some of the best creatives who use Affinity programs. I've been selected, and I had the pleasure of creating vector illustrations for three magazine covers. As a concept we have chosen a magazine for travel lovers. Hence the choice of the name, "Vagare" , which in Italian means "wandering".
Cover 1 - Trekking
The first cover uses the concept of trekking, so I chose to represent a backpack with some useful objects. The elements float as if they crawl out of the backpack on their own. The main color is green, to remind the color of the woods and mountains, a great place for those who like trekking.
Cover 2 - Pizza
In the second cover the theme was an Italian classic. Pizza is one of the most popular foods in the world, and is easily associated with Italian cuisine. As in the first cover, the elements are represented while they float, as if they were dropped from the top. The main color is brown, this color reminds the classic wood-burning ovens that pizza makers use to cook.
Cover 3 - Wine
The third cover represents the path of wine creation in its main steps. To connect the main illustrations I used a road with hills on either side. This represents the Italian territory, where it is easy to see hills and mountains while traveling. The main color is purple, which is often associated with the color of wine.
