Under Fred Woodward’s artistic direction, John Munoz’s recent editorial for GQ — Naked and Famous (image above) — is one of many recent Design competition submissions for the popular men’s monthly magazine. It introduces an intimate look at an interesting public figure. Alice Gregory gives GQ readers the scoop on up-and-coming Ryan McGinley’s photography and life story.
GQ has submitted numerous editorial pieces to the Design Annual 2016 competition, including Martin Salazar’s What the F#%k Is on Your Face, Brah? (image below). The snarky piece rolls out the latest in cosmetic products for, yes, men. “Some women like to watch MMA. Some men like to get manicures. It’s the twenty-first century — gender lines are blurry, and that’s A-OK,” writes GQ‘s Drew Magary in the piece. Salazar’s colorful, stylistic designs make for an eye-catching article that will surely get a second look.
Salazar is an accomplished designer at GQ Magazine, whose work encompasses design for print, as well as interactive. He has worked as a designer to Fernando Gutierrez Studio in London, as well as Roger Black Studio in New York City. In 2009, he worked with the Washington Post 2009 re-design team.
The Graphis Design Competition features some of the most compelling and influential design of the year from across the world. Gold and Platinum awards, along with winning entries, will be published in the Design Annual 2016.
