Humble brag time: Idealog's augmented reality issue wins Best Cover at the 2019 Magazine Awards

You may remember the augmented reality cover Idealog released last year for the 2018 Technology Issue – it's in such hot demand, we barely have any copies left to refer to due to them being constantly snapped up by fans.

Here, we revisit the design process behind the cover.
