Wednesday Comparison: CMYK 50th Cover Heavily Inspired by Student Work?

A tipster sent us a link to an image this morning that’s essentially a side-by-side comparison between student work that was submitted as part of a 2010 CMYK competition and the cover of CMYK‘s 50th issue, which came out about nine months later. Take a gander:

The work on the left was created by Miami Ad School students Alexis Budejen (art director) and Mindy Hoblack (copywriter). We checked with CMYK on the matter, and to their credit, they quickly replied and told us that they’re checking in with the mag’s designers who were behind the 50th issue cover to see what’s up. While we await their word, we’ll continue wondering whether this is either amazing coincidence or that the students’ work legitimately played into the cover. Check out the full-size image after the jump.
