For most of us, Halloween says one thing. Not ghosts, not goblins, not haunted houses. But candy.
And what better way to illustrate a story on Halloween candy than to create an image using Halloween candy?
That’s exactly what Coryanne Graham, visual editor for WichiTalk, did for today’s WichiTalk cover. As visual editor, Coryanne is responsible for art-directing photographic and illustrative ideas for WichiTalk cover stories, as well as designing the section two days a week.
She explains how she came up with today’s inventive cover:
"As we began talking about doing an all-candy WichiTalk issue, I started thinking about how I could build an all-candy cover. After a little brainstorming with other page designers, I sketched out a ghost overlooking a hillside.
"I planned from the start to build the entire image out of candy, but I didn’t choose the sweets until I got to the candy store. You’ll find assorted jelly beans, licorice laces, Nerds, M&Ms, candy pumpkins and one chocolate coin on the cover."
To which I can add only: Sweet!
