Francesco Poroli and Africa
Brief: Design the September issue of Diplomat and commission another fantastic cover.
Solution: To commission Milan based, Francesco Poroli, a self-taught freelance illustrator and art director to create the cover for the Africa issue.
Francesco’s masculine and graphic style works to portray Africa as an exciting investment destination. I contacted Francesco just before the Olympics and I believe his idea for the cover was born from watching the African countries being represented in all their glory at the opening Olympic Ceremony. This was the first and last draft. Perfection!
