Finweek is South Africa’s leading business and financial weekly, delivering news, analysis and investigative reporting of the highest calibre to readers who are serious about managing their money and succeeding in business. Finweek’s content focuses on business and investment issues with a leaning towards investigative stories and columns. The primary audience is business executives and investors.

“It is one of the country’s largest circulating business titles.”

While working at Globecreative, I had the privelage to conceptualise and work on the cover designs displayed below. As this was a weekly magazine, covers were done within tight deadlines, usually a day or two, sometimes the night before, usually presenting 4-7 covers for each issue. With very short turnaround times, I was tasked with coming up with concepts to portray each cover story, and design several covers using stock imagery that I photoshopped to various degrees.
