My colleagues and I were wondering why the cover of SC is always pretty much exactly the same?

The cover usually seems to have a chap in a suit, often with their hands in their pockets, standing next to the same layout of text. Do you have only one template?

We feel that a little variety on the cover would be a welcome feature in your otherwise excellent magazine. Are there any plans to introduce new cover designs in the future?
