11 Lives

This magazine spread from Esquire is an ingenious way of drawing the reader into an article about the tragic deaths of the 11 crew on the oil rig Deepwater Horizon. The designer deals with the event by showing a NASA satellite photograph rather than some horrific image. On the right, if you enlarge the image, you can see the flame and smoke from the rig.

The fading type treatment on the left expresses the disappearance of life and how those that died, forever will be missed.
