The New York Times Magazine “Behind the Cover”— Behind the Cover is a weekly video series HunterGatherer produces for The New York Times Magazine, now in its second season. Through interviews, stop-motion animations and behind-the-scenes looks at the creative process, we capture the story of how each week’s cover was made. We created the identity system for the series, as well as unique and reoccurring elements for each week’s episode.

Role: Design, animation.
Editors: Phil Pinto & Laura Tomaselli
NYT Mag Design Director: Gail Bichler
