Introduction: What is a Game of Thrones Magazine Cover?

Game of Thrones is a popular HBO show and arguably the most successful TV show in history. The series has been nominated for over 216 awards, winning 56% of them. The show has received many nominations for its music, writing, directing and acting. It has won three Golden Globe awards (2012, 2015, 2016) and thirteen Emmy awards (2012 -2016). The show also has fourteen nominations for the People’s Choice Awards and been nominated for thirteen Saturn awards.
In addition to its success in the United States, Game of Thrones has also gained a huge following in other countries. The series is very popular in several European countries. Great Britain is one of them. It has helped bring Game of Thrones to viewers weekly, as it airs on Channel 4 in the UK, along with its official DVD/Blu-ray release and online streaming.
Although the series and show are tremendously successful, there were numerous factors that contributed to how popular the series and show became. One of them was its release. The show and series has only been on HBO for five years; however, by many fans’ standards, it was released over 10 years ago. Unfortunately for many people in other countries all over the world, HBO does not air Game of Thrones in their countries. For countries that do not receive the HBO channel, there are plenty of ways to watch the series. The most popular method is to buy HBO Game of Thrones box sets, season 1 – 8 (currently only available in Blu-ray). However, people in other countries who cannot buy or find box sets can still legally watch Game of Thrones online.

Something you didn’t know about Game of Thrones?: How it started

The show got its start in 1991 with a pilot called ‘Colloquy of the animals.’It was intended for broadcast on PBS but HBO asked to buy it and aired it in 1993.The story follows a medieval world where magic and dragons exist alongside knights, sorcerers and assassins. The series begins with two families vying for power: the Stark family who controls Winterfell, the North and the Lannisters who control King’s Landing – his alleged capital city. The Stark family is torn apart by a battle between two of its sons and the Lannisters have to fight off an attack by the Starks.
The series was inspired by a novel called La guerre des Trois Couronnes ou L’héritage de la maison Royce, written by George R. R. Martin. “La guerre des trois couronnes” means “war of the three crowns”. Since Martin is a fan of the show and author, some books he has written before have been influenced by the show’s plot lines . Martin has been working on the next book in the series since 1991.

Game Of Thrones Magazine Cover Design Process

The cover shows three characters Tyrion Lannister, Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen. Tyrion is shown with a white tabard on which the Stark sigil, a direwolf with blue eyes, is seen. Jon Snow is on the left wearing a black tabard with the Stark sigil on it and Daenerys Targaryen, the princess who was married to two of the show’s main characters, is on the right. These three main characters played major roles in the season five cliffhanger, when Jon Snow was stabbed multiple times by members of the Night’s Watch.
The designer of the cover says that he wanted to separate the scene into thirds. The Stark sigil and magical ice weapon dragon glass is also seen on Daenery’s dress as she clutches Tyrion Lannister, who is also an adviser to Daenerys. The face of Tyrion Lannister has been purposely distorted with a lens flare effect on it. He is yelling with his mouth open, trying to warn the people of Westeros about the threat on their land.

Brands & Influencers article tips for creating great covers for magazines and websites

For the magazine cover, it’s all about how the characters are portrayed, how they relate to each other and why they are on the cover. The design is shown with a close-up of their face – it doesn’t matter who they are. They could be anything: someone in a wheelchair or with a gun or even showing off their abs on the beach. The core value is that they are on the cover.
Those are the rules we are sticking by, but there are a few other things I would like to touch upon. The cover doesn’t need to be an accurate representation of what’s inside. We don’t want to see a gun-toting character on the cover of a hardback book on human rights or religion. Those are the types of covers that sell. Look at US magazine covers, for example: those are always beautiful affairs with lots of detail and colour.
The main thing is: make your cover different. It doesn’t have to be a close up of someone’s face – it can be something weird, or abstract, like a car exploding on the front of a conspiracy magazine. The essence is that it makes people curious and want to pick it up and see what it’s all about.
