A couple of weeks ago, almost a year since I worked on designing it, Benzanoe Issue 65 was finally published. It’s been refined a bit since I last showed it to you and overall I’m really pleased with it and excited to finally have my own copy.
Apologies for the poor quality image, once I have completed the redesign of my website I’ll hopefully put some better shots of the magazine up on it.

So I gave you all a taster of my work on Issue 65 of Benzanoe Magazine in Sundays post, but now that I have pictures of the completed initial mockup I thought I’d show you them. As you may notice there have been a few changes since that post, with my ‘Define’ section being inverted to white on black and the ‘Design’ section being renamed to ‘Develop’. The layout of ‘Define’ has also been altered to increase the idea of clarity within it.
To recap, myself and nine of my peers formed the design team for this issue, which was headed by one of our course tutors who runs the magazine. Based on the theme of ‘The Future Is Only Present Hope’ we chose to split the magazine into four sections, with the fourth the actual magazine and the initial three chronicling the production and design of it.
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.
