tomer :: Deliver is a magazine produced for the u.s postal service. it deals with issues of direct marketing and the benefits of using mailings to create effective and personal campaigns, unlike TV spots that tend to be very general and over the top. the amount of time spent watching TV by the average American is consistently declining and alternative ways are (re)emerging.
giving the subject a si-fi bent, a concept was cooked in which a boy is forced by corporate scientists to watch big screens and when he escapes his captures, a mail dove greets him to freedom. the client stressed that the front and back covers needed to continue the same space so it was a bit tricky getting a time continuation established. these are the initial sketches:
