Creating magazines, newspapers, journals, blogs, or any other periodical, print or digital, is as much influenced by time-tested principles as by recent trends and behaviors. How do we design continuous experiences across media as technology continues to evolve? And in this new landscape where information is everywhere at all times, what are the new opportunities for print?
Through conversations, case studies, and elementary principles, authors Sue Apfelbaum and Juliette Cezzar offer an essential guide for both advanced design students and working designers seeking to broaden their practice. The book combines the wisdom of experts, visual examples from publications taking dynamic approaches to the contemporary publishing landscape, and a straightforward set of elements essential to editorial design on any platform.
Case studies include BuzzFeed, Huffington Post, The New York Times, The Guardian, USA TODAY, Bloomberg Businessweek, Rookie, Pitchfork, New York Magazine, Vanity Fair Italia, The New Republic, It’s Nice That, The Awl Weekend Companion, Letter to Jane, Paper, Gather, Apartamento, Anorak, and WAX. Included are eighteen interviews with designers, art directors, and creative directors at these publications, plus interviews with Paul Ford, David Sleight, Jeanette Abbink, Mandy Brown, Stella Bugbee, Jeffrey Zeldman, David Jacobs and Natalie Podrazik, and Justin Thomas Kay.
