How to Create a Rolling Stone-Inspired Magazine Cover



In this video tutorial, we’ll pay tribute to the iconic graphic style of Rolling Stone, which was created by the original art directors, John Williams and Lloyd Ziff. The script-style logo and red, white and black color palette have become synonymous with the magazine and have remained largely unchanged for many decades, with only a few minor modernisations. Here you’ll learn how to create a tribute magazine cover in Adobe InDesign and replicate the iconic style of classic Rolling Stone covers.
