Always fun to hear great art-directors talk about their favorite magazine covers.
This month Coverjunkie asked partner and design director (along with Raquel Porto) from + 2 designers in Lisbon, Portugal about his favorite covers that are so good he wished he designed them himself:

Click here for Vasco's favorite top 3 covers:
- Bloomberg Businessweek
- New York Times Magazine
- Andy Warhol's Interview

And here his own designed top 4:
- UP Estrada Real:
"This cover is about a famous interstate road in Brazil used by portuguese gold explorers in the 16th century..."
- UP Pantanal:
"We decided to work the hair to recreate a weird bird with its colours and textures..."
- UP New York:
"the hommage to Paula Scher was a truly moment of fun for someone like me..."
- UP Berlin:
"different references but still with a minimalist touch: the Berlin wall, the grafitti, Wenders' Wings of Desire...."

This is something Coverjunkie likes to do more often, hope you enjoy!
