Scottish Magazine Cover of the Decade

Well done to designer Matt Ball for winning the PPA Scottish Magazine Cover of the Decade award last night at the Scottish Magazine Awards in Glasgow.

Matt’s beautiful cover design was created to illustrate an interview I did with Steve McCaw, a Clarion rider who broke the VTTA hour record at Meadowbank in 2011.

I don’t want to claim any credit for this, rather express pride at being associated with it and congratulations to Matt and the Clarion – a great accolade for a volunteer publication for an amateur sports club to beat established commercial titles. As well as the cover, Matt put his skills to great use in laying out and designing the piece, giving it a classy, professional feel and great aesthetics to ‘boot’.
