Variety's Summer of Telemundo
Sam Hadley's Variety cover accompanies a piece titled "¡Hecho en USA!" that charts the rise of NBCUniversal's Spanish-language network Telemundo. "Even though the style is very painterly, it's actually painted digitally in Photoshop," Hadley said. "The process is still much the same as if it were natural media." Though the zoom-out concept was decided on before he received the brief, the pose was left up to him: "It needed to follow the 'classic embrace' composition to feel like a genuine poster."
"We don't have telenovelas in England," the Brit added, "so I had a fair bit of Internet research to do."
