That’s right, for their November cover GQ France has president (and presidential candidate) Barack Obama!
This issue is great and I’m not only talking design wise, but also content wise. I realize I don’t talk about content in my articles but it also plays a big part in a cover. This is definitely an issue you want to pick up if you can read french. Those great articles are of course completed by great design. It fascinates me to observe how the same magazine ends up being so completely different from one country to another. The general design of GQ US is pretty nice but I don’t love it the same way I do GQ France.
Anyways getting back to this awesome new issue, definitely a go getter! the article and layout on Obama is well worth your time trust me. I usually don’t enjoy reading articles in magazines like this but I have to say this one actually gets me to. The layouts are perfect for legibility and well organized.
It’s a stunning cover, loving the blue they used for the headline and the picture of President Obama is quite nice though I wouldn’t have minded it being a bit bigger to get to a real portrait type photo. Honestly this is the only thing I can find that might bother me a little bit, apart from that kudos to the whole GQ team in Paris.
Time to go grab yours!
side note: Obama has been on a few other GQ covers, which one is your favorite?
