Grand Canyons

Time Out Los Angeles

*Winner of ADC Awards - Illustration category; Merit*

Owen was approached by Time Out Los Angeles to create a cover for their 'Grand Canyons' issue, focusing on the Los Angeles canyon region and the highlights of the unique neighbourhoods that sit amongst the rolling hills.

Inspired by the headline and theme Owen created a multi-layered topographic artwork, using multiple layers of white paper raised at varying heights and shot with soft lighting, allowing the shadows to define the forms. Using a bold typeface he then cut the headline typography through the canyon layers, revealing layers of vibrant colour below which reflect the lively and colourful culture of the canyon cities and take the focus away from the typical earthy tones and imagery associated the 'Grand Canyon'
