As soon as we saw Max Guther’s wondrously detailed, atmospheric beach scene, we knew this was the image we wanted for our Illustrator Hotlist cover.

BEREN NEALEEDITORBeren has been having loads of fun working with Mark and Zach Leiberman for this year’s new Brand Impact Awards look (see page 47). It’s been mesmerising and computer-crashing.MARK WYNNEART EDITORLike every right-thinking Guardian reader with a love of culture, our art editor nodded in agreement at the disparaging reviews of the new Jeff Koons exhibition whilst secretly cooing “Oooh, shiny balloon rabbit!”CLIFF HOPEOPERATIONS EDITORCliff also works on our sister creative title ImagineFX, so he’ll be right at home poring over the work of talented designers as he is with artists who paint cyborg dragons.
