Mak­ing the cover

Computer Arts - - News - Watch the em­boss be­ing ap­plied at Cel­lo­glas in our lat­est mak­ing-of video – plus many of our other spe­cial cov­ers be­ing fin­ished – at www.bit.ly/ca-print­fin­ishes

In pre­vi­ous years, CA’s money-themed spe­cials have fea­tured vis­ual metaphors galore, in­clud­ing a scratch­card-style ‘salary sur­vey’ in 2014, and a slightly more in­y­our-face gi­ant gold coin, fea­tur­ing a fist clutch­ing a wad of bank notes, in 2015.

This is­sue, fol­low­ing a tur­bu­lent year of Brexit and Trump-re­lated un­cer­tainty in global mar­kets, we de­cided to draw fi­nan­cial in­spi­ra­tion from the peaks and troughs of the stock ex­change.

De­signed in-house by CA’s art editor Jo Gul­liver, this is­sue’s cover ref­er­ences the in­for­ma­tion boards on the trad­ing floor, packed with data about the lat­est rises and falls on the mar­ket – while the ma­trix of LED-style dots that make up the main head­line have been em­bossed by our friends at Cel­lo­glas.
