For the Los Angeles Times Sunday Business cover about Apple’s new campus in Cupertino, California. The campus is estimated to be the size of the Pentagon and according to the article, “Apple envisions the 176-acre campus as its own Fortress of Solitude that will cut off northeast Cupertino from the public.”
The art director, Derek Simmons, suggested I play off the imagery of a well-known Cupertino mural depicting its old storefronts, a granary and farmer’s fields. I wanted to show an older man painting over the mural of the Cupertino he knew with an image of the new Cupertino. A young woman plays on her phone in an “out with the old, in with the new” approach.
