A few months ago I was asked to create the 2018 cover for the Edelman citizenship report, an annual report of sorts. The cover had to encompass the 4 main principles of their corporate culture: community, people, world, and clients.
After a few sketches were worked over the final color version was created. The 4 “quadrants” were also used as section openers for the piece.
Below are the sketches I submitted for the cover and the final art.
