Oprah could afford a less airbrushed, cluttered Magazine cover
With the vast fortune Ms. Winfrey has, you would think she could have the best graphic artists and designers working on her magazine.
On this issue’s cover, we see terrible airbrushing techniques that look way too artificial. I think she could easily be placed in a movie taking place in a spaceship.
Another design issue is with the main title, “De-Clutter Your Life!”. Ironically, the cover itself could use some de-cluttering. There’s almost no whitespace and the fonts are huge. Something de-cluttered and more appropriate, something like DigitalAge here.
One website says Oprah looks like the captain from WALL-E, if you’d like to read more here.
