Have you ever had the chance of getting either a physical or digital copy of the W42ST Magazine? If not, you may probably want to check them out here. W42ST Magazine is a lifestyle magazine that provides the public with authentic stories about New Yorkers and their lives. The magazine also offers updates and information about events and happenings occurring around the city. I came across W42ST magazine a few years ago while working in Hell’s Kitchen and was curious about the magazine when I glanced at it.

What ignited my curiosity was the illustration cover design. The illustration was the focal point, supported by the painterly logo, as well as the handwritten quirky type that offered insight into the contents of the magazine. However, I became more fascinated with the magazine once I seen the next couple of issues that were released. Most of their cover designs included bright bold-colored illustrations or playful photography. I enjoyed the cover designs so much that I began collecting them. When placing the collections against each other, you can see the unifying quality that binds them all together and makes them stand out equally. I enjoyed the cover art of the many illustrators, designers, and artists who created them because they’re so rich and original and tell a story on their own. I also love the different styles the cover is created in, from illustrations, to photography, to painterly, to a textured-based design; the design styles are spontaneous and not predictable.
