ESPN Magazine: Naomi Osaka stacks
ESPN Cover, Naomi Osaka (2021) is an ESPN Magazine cover I designed featuring multi-time Grand Slam singles champion Naomi Osaka. I chose Osaka because of her perseverance, advocating for her mental health over competing in the US Open in the face of media criticism. The design includes a collage of Osaka from various matches, along with two custom typefaces I created, "Loop-de-Loop" and "Beacon."
