Wallpaper* mag invites readers to create own covers again

Wallpaper* magazine has launched its second customisable covers initiative ahead of its August issue.

Following on from the success of last year, readers can once again create their own cover based on a series of graphics, shapes, colours and photography.

Each design will be bound to a copy of the August “Handmade issue” and delivered to the reader.

A series of animated designs can also be selected for use online, with each creation displayed in the Custom Covers gallery at

A Rolex ‘Live for Greatness’ ad on the back page can be personalised too. One of two watches can be selected, as well as a date that will appear on the face of the timepiece, alongside the line: “Some days are made for greatness”.

Publishing director, Gord Ray, said: “Our last Custom Covers project was incredible, with more than 21,000 unique covers created – and delivered. This time, we have an even better design tool, and the back-cover ad from our partner Rolex really adds to the interactive, bespoke experience.”

Applications are open until May 31. The issue goes on sale July 14.
