I promised you earlier this week that today’s post would include some info on Issue 65 of Benzanoe Magazine and my work designing it, so here we are. Part of a ten person design team, we spent five days working on it, creating a concept for the design of the issue as well as the layout and other elements. The issue itself was based on the theme ‘The Future Is Only Present Hope’ and we chose to split the magazine into four sections, with the first three documenting the design and production of it and the fourth section the magazine itself.
The four sections were labelled ‘Design’, ‘Discover’, ‘Design’ and ‘Deliver’ with myself working on the ‘Define’ section. It documented the initial stages of the design period, containing information on the history of Benzanoe, magazine contributors and the brand values we created amongst other things. It was laid out in a clear and concise way befitting of the content within, using footnotes to provide information. I will, more than likely, be able to show you some images of the whole magazine mockup on Wednesday.
Song of the week today is this great one by White Lies. Enjoy!
