Editorial design


Nieuwe Vide asked Magda Skibinska and me to design their monthly magazine. We were free in every sense of the word. We chose to take a conceptually different approach and used photo collage throughout the whole magazine. Next to that, we wanted to play with different type-sizes within an article. For the more complex articles, we choose to keep the type calmer but did put it on a bright pink background. In the end, the whole magazine feels like a combination of a Zine and a more commercial magazine, which for us was a great result.
