Inspiration series: Magazines
2008 at 11.33 am posted by Veerle Pieters
We continue the exploration of the offline world in search for that spark of inspiration. This time we are going to look at magazines. There are all sorts of them out there and some are better than others. I’ve tried to come up with an interesting mix of styles and topics to keep it diverse.
Some magazines really scream because of all the content. I don't know where to look first with those. I am more a fan of the less is more approach. These kind of lay-outs makes it easier to read imho. Another thing that makes or break a magazine are the pictures and the artwork inside combined with the advertising. I've seen well lay-outed magazines that loose their edge when you face the ugly advertising. It's really craftsmanship to pull off a magazine that has both.
