Bloomberg Businessweek’s ‘Ground Zero’ Cover is Stunning

Bloomberg Businessweek has been getting a lot of love lately, and rightfully so. The features are engaging, and the design – thanks mostly to Creative Director Richard Turley – is among the best in the industry. Check out the upcoming cover, featuring a spectacular photograph, high above ground zero. Here are some thoughts on the cover, from Turley’s Tumblr:

There will be many MANY 9/11 covers in the coming weeks and I’m certain that this will not be the best one of that lot. But, I’m a sucker for aerial photography so I’m easily sold on this one.

All credit for the picture goes to Karen Frank – our deputy photography director – who found this Vincent Laforet shot at the last minute. I’m all the more grateful for Karen’s find as I managed to somehow not know what was on the cover until Tuesday lunchtime (and we send the cover on Wednesday morning).

We think Turley is selling himself a bit short – this cover is bound to be among the best.
