February 25, 2013

Ruth Rowland was commissioned by Harvard Graduate School of Education to create the cover, plus double page spread and half page illustrations, for an article about mathematics reform in the winter issue of Ed. Magazine

“The design team's simple but witty idea for the cover, a pseudo-math equation, was carefully rendered to read both as an equation and the subject of the article,” recalls Ruth.

“I enjoyed combining chalkboard with squared paper backgrounds, numerals and equations to illustrate the piece.” Inside the magazine, Ruth retained the simple color palette to keep the more complex illustrations eye-catching and legible.
