The 250th Le Cool Dublin cover.

By Edinburgh-based Irish illustrator and designer, Mica Warren.

Mica sez

I thought that something number based would be fitting for the 250th issue, I used that as my starting point. I’ve been reading a book about Islamic Patterns recently and the geometric grid structures that underpin them. So I thought geometry, maths, numbers, savage, I’ll have a whack at that. Using one of these grids I created the type for the cover. What’s amazing about these patterns and grid structures is that they can potentially repeat and go on forever, I would like to wish Le Cool the same kind of longevity. Happy 250th!
