Magazine Designing

Few months ago, my friend told me that I don't have a proper job. He said "You play around with images and text. That's not a proper job! It's child's play".
Well, sometimes it's really proper job, but sometimes it's all play. Like yesterday.
Attached is an opener for a feature about brain and how to keep it in good shape. Headline is "Mozak u dobroj formi (Brain in a Good Shape)".
After several failed attempts, I got an idea to use Scrabble cubes and arrange the headline. But then, while drinking coffee at my lunch break I had an idea to rearrange letters into an anagram that reader would have to solve to get an headline. Solution is tucked away in bottom left corner. More interesting and more fun.
Editor-in-chief and I were very happy with it. So, I played around. And yes, it's fun to have a job where you can play.
Keep on playing!

Composing easy readable text is designers responsibility. I have stated this in several articles on Magazine Designing. Breaking text for sense in headlines, intro and deck is a must for better looking and what is more important easier to read text.

On Oct. 4, the New York Times Magazine sent a Donald Trump cover to the racks that made a splash online and in print. I caught up with Design Director Gail Bichler, asking her to share how her team found a unique twist on a such popular topic.
