The Illustrator Elliot Quince, previously art director at 300million, has designed a hieroglyphic inspired front cover for Easyjet’s in-flight magazine, Traveller. In visual terms, nothing speaks of the mysteries of Egypt quite like a wall of hieroglyphics; constructed with plasticine pyramids, sea creatures and infamous hieroglyphic symbols like the Eye of Horus.

Quince began experimenting with plasticine in 2011, after buying some for his daughter. He then subsequently released Plasticine Tatooine – a book featuring his star wars inspired plasticine experiments.

The part time illustrator, part time comedian worked on the cover for around four days, starting by sketching a template and then creating a larger sized plasticine piece that allowed him to easily manipulate fine details.

In an EasyJet article on the making of the cover, Quince explained, it was a straightforward process – aside from a slight setback when he realised his cat had snuck into his studio overnight. “I spent the morning scraping off furry footprints,” he says. Still, it all worked out in the end and – I hope you agree – it’s a fun and unusual cover that offers something a little bit different to the usual mundane in-flight magazine covers.
