Nowhere to Hide

An Economist cover, from a concept by cover designer Graeme James. This was the (almost) finished version - the earring didn't make it on to the actual cover.
Various iterations of the idea as we worked through it. In addition to the obvious changes of outfit, the face undergoes a subtle evolution. The aim was to make the facial features visible at second glance, rather than leaping off the page immediately.
