The Project: Social Media Monthly, a new publication reporting on the ever-changing social landscape, reached out to JESS3 to create the cover for its issue featuring Google+. The cover story looks at the newest social entrant’s likelihood to overtake Facebook.

Our Methodology: We knew immediately we wanted to depict the conflict in a literal way: be it a shootout, knife fight or extraterrestrial invasion. Although it’s a battle and battles generally have victors, we were careful not to editorialize by placing either social network in a dominant light.

The Results: The characters Google+ and Facebook, draped in their signature colors and respective insignia, square off in a colorful illustration. Bonus: We designed the Monthly’s nameplate and QR code, too!
