When we founded RoundTable, we wanted to make sure that the journal had a unique voice and look. One of the ways that we achieved this was through a cover image designed by our very own Anne Malewski. Anne is a talented illustrator and she has done work with a range of musicians and organisations.
In order to begin the process of creating the cover, Anne met with her co-editors to discuss the concept. She then produced a number of design options which she presented to the team (see some drafts below!). There was a lot of discussion and debate as we all liked different images but we agreed that the chosen image best represented our theme and provided a strong visual image for the first issue of RoundTable.
Every time I log on to the RoundTable site, I am delighted to be greeted by Anne’s image. I think it helps makes our journal unique and entices readers to explore the first issue.
