Remember Sky Magazine? Nothing to do with the TV channel but a magazine aimed at 16 - 21 years olds that was started in the late 80's. It went off the boil around '94 and died in 2001. April brought these old issues in for something we're working on. The covers are great aren't they?
Look at those covers. Not a pair of breasts on show! Decent (but not brilliant) portrait photography! Men and women! Real stars, as opposed to semi-naked Big Brother stars! Sky also featured decent articles about social and political stuff that didn't read about elsewhere it you were 15. It was brilliant.
Those covers have a nice, simple, strong graphic style that stood out on the news stand.
Great dps' like this Lisa Stansfield one. Simple and distinctive. Confident.
Looking through I stumbled across this ad. I loved that ad. It seemed to make so much sense, it was so true. I guess it wouldn't be the same now with txt messaging an all. But at the time I guess that's what you call an insight?
Anyway. Sky Magazine - bloody great covers.
