What is Graphic design for??

GRAFIK - new edition cover.

Now i am an avid fan of grafik magazine and what it produces, but for some reason i really cannot stand this front cover. I am all up for geometric patterns and splash colour, however i just dont think this works. I dont like the use of colour and i don't think there is anything that special about the pattern itself. It isn't that visually engaging and to be honest quite bland. The symmetry is the only real thing going for it to be honest. I don't like the type being used on the front either, i just dont think the type face goes with the image that well and i think if they had that much faith in the image they should have just left it with the grafik title and let it lye.
