The Hollywood Reporter commissioned KCS for their most important issue of the year: the Oscars Issue. KCS created a custom, one use only, masthead that maintains the integrity of the original mark but adding a signature finish optimized for gold foil stamping. Additionally, KCS created a singular interpretation of the word “Oscars” that incorporates an ornate illustration of the oscars statue in the filigree of the “O.” A half page illustration extends the illustration style in an opulent, intricate illustration of the oscar introduces the main feature. KCS also art directed the finishing treatment of the photograph of Chris Rock for the cover to harmoniously integrate with the custom lettering.
