Jessica Svendsen is a designer who cut her teeth at Pentagram, working under Michael Bierut. We featured her work two years ago, and her recent well-executed work for MIT Technology Review caught our eye.
Jessica has designed the cover and opening illustration for the magazine’s March/April 2016 issue on ten breakthrough technologies. Bold and monochromatic, the cover and illustration feature the number ten in two different styles; one an elegant ribbon shape and the other more wire-like and bendy. On her site, Jessica’s also included a selection of proposed covers which are equally as strong as the final design and give a great insight into her design process. Drawing on space-age shapes and formations, the clean and crisp lines cast a modern shadow over the retro forms.
