MANAGEMENT INSIDER SPECIAL ISSUE ON THE WORLD ECONOMIC FORUM
Management Insider was gearing up for their latest edition, and it was an important one. The management team was also looking for a new visual direction for the magazine. As Art Director, I crafted the layout and set a new modern look for the magazine going forward.
A SPECIAL ISSUE
This special issue of Management Insider focused on the World Economic Forum (WEF) on ASEAN taking place in Phnom Penh. The issue was also to be the official publication of the convention; being placed in all official venues, cars, and hotels for the WEF.
Its pages contained interviews with two of Cambodia’s top ministers. The cover feature was a Q&A with Dr. Aun Pornminiroth, the minister for Economy and Finance. The other featured a conversation with Sok Chenda Sophea, the Secretary General of the Council for Development of Cambodia.
The cover story dealt with the country’s rising prominence in ASEAN. I found the title so evocative that I wanted to make something really illustrative of it. In the end, I went with a photo of the minister against a map of Southeast Asia with a tiger pin created in the 3D modeling application Cinema 4D. Using depth play and perspective, I created a basin out of the bordering countries out of which Cambodia could pop.
