Issue 94 of Eye magazine has been released with 8000 unique covers designed by MuirMcneil. The issue, a type special, uses two typefaces, TwoPoint and TwoPlus, and HP Mosaic technology to create the individual covers.
Using a digital printing press and Mosaic, a variable data program (which was also used when Emily Forgot created 2000 unique bottles for Heineken) a different image file was created for each pass of the press, created from a number of ‘seed files’ supplied by MuirMcneil. The artwork is resized, rotated and recoloured for each cover.
Inside the issue readers can find features about Nadine Chahine, MuirMcneil, NovoTypo, House Industries, Neue Kabel and more. Eye has released a video about the contents of issue 94 here.
