To design a 4-page feature treatment and cover that visually communicates a story about the blockbuster film series The Hunger Games. The fourth sequel called Mockingjay Part 2 was directed by LMU alumnus Francis Lawrence
We decided on an illustration solution instead of photography because portraits of the director had been featured in the publication several times before and the author of the piece wrote about the totalitarian themes of the film and the original book. We commissioned illustrator Tavis Coburn who happened to be a super fan of The Hunger Games.
The original cover and feature has garnered several national awards recently.
