Businessweek’s Obama re-election cover

Spooky! (And the Romney cover that won’t run.)

Businessweek’s transparency around its covers — including a weekly video in its iPad app explaining each cover’s design evolution — is pretty great. I’d say I’m surprised more magazines aren’t copying them, but most magazines don’t have the creativity today’s Businessweek does, nor the foresight to show it off.

More about Businessweek’s creative director Richard Turley here in his SplatF Creators interview, and a profile I wrote about him for Business Insider last year.
