Client: Maxim Magazine

Art Direction: Chandra Illick

Former Buffy the Vampire Slayer crony Michelle Trachtenberg was featured on the March 2011 cover of Maxim magazine and to introduce the story, the art directors of Maxim were looking for an autograph lettering style. I wanted the lettering to feel as seductive as the cover image, so used lipstick as a medium to create the letter forms for the cover and inside spread.
