Columbus Monthly Floral Type

In full bloom for Columbus Monthly, I dug deeply into the Dispatch basement studio for this editorial cover celebrating the best of city greenery and eateries. We covered the floor in vermiculite dotted soil and various buds, petals, and flowers from zinnias, impatiens, and forget-me-nots. The masthead was replicated with green bean seeds, used for their bright whiteness and visibility.

CM compiled a lovely "making of" video documenting the sprouting and demolition of the July cover.
