Vogue covers by Parisian artist André Edouard Marty
When I saw a post about “The Art of Vogue Covers,” my eye was first drawn towards the elegant composition and illustration on the July 23, 1930 issue. The seemingly sparse magazine cover makes wonderful use of white space, with subtle smoke travelling upwards to blend softly into the thick, hand-lettered Vogue masthead.

Above is another fashionable Vogue cover with full-bleed art of a woman painting. On this cover from August 1929, “Vogue” looks painted in cursive, with each letter linking to the next without hesitation, one continuous stroke of a brush.
Both covers are by André Edouard Marty. I’m slightly embarrassed that I was unfamiliar with the artist A. E. Marty until today.

“Swoosh: 40 Years Fly By” 
Steven Heller looks back on the interesting history and “DNA” of the iconic Nike logo, the evolution from a “stripe” to a “swoosh,” and that infamous “bargain brand” first designed in 1969 by Carolyn Davidson, supposedly for a mere $35. She was a graphic design student at the time.
The final variation of the design was launched to the public in June 1971.
