Google, Condé Nast Reveal Pixel Magazine Cover Campaign
Get ready for more magazine covers to be in the hands of advertisers.
In its biggest simultaneous cover campaign, Condé Nast handed over seven November magazine covers to be photographed with Google’s newest Pixel 3 phone as part of a paid advertising placement. WWD last month first reported the link-up, but the exact number of covers and whether there would be any other features to the campaign was unknown.
Now, Condé has revealed that Allure, Architectural Digest, Bon Appétit, Condé Nast Traveler, Glamour, GQ and W are all issuing covers as part of the Pixel campaign. The covers feature actor Angela Bassett, model Alessandra Ambrosio, a Thanksgiving spread, Bermuda, Mandy Moore with Susan Kelechi Watson and Chrissy Metz, Ryan Gosling and the inimitable Cardi B, respectively. Photographers involved in the issues include Sharif Hamza, Douglas Friedman, Victor Demarchelier, Giampaolo Sgura and Mickalene Thomas, but they all only shot the cover image with a Pixel, not accompanying in-book spreads.
