The media industry is in upheaval. New magazines, daily newspapers, and books are being developed, classics are being redesigned, and the interplay between the printed and digital realms is being tested. Against this background, Turning Pages is a perceptive survey of the state-of-the-art magazines, books, and newspapers that are redefining print media today as well as an inspirational forecast of future developments. The book introduces relevant solutions for a print landscape that has been and continues to be changed indelibly by economic challenges and our shifting media preferences. It examines the creative approaches and working methods of designers who are at the forefront of evolving print media in our digital age.
Renowned editorial designers not only present their magazine, book, and newspaper projects in striking images, but also comment on the stages of their publication's conceptualization, design, and production. Thus, the book gives readers a step-by-step overview of the editorial process as well as valuable perspectives on how different designers are meeting the challenges of creating outstanding print products for today and the years to come.
Turning Pages begins with an introduction by respected magazine expert Andrew Losowsky, who has also contributed texts that explore the essentials of the editorial process. It features interviews and statements from leading and upcoming editorial design talent including Carine Collin, Francesco Franchi, Javier Errea, Kircherburkhardt, Ludovic Balland, Mike Meiré and Omar Sosa. The book examines how magazines such as Apartamento, Domus, Graphic, IL, Monocle and Volt are pushing the envelope of what is state-of-the-art in today's print products; how books have become the hotbed for new editorial concepts and design; and how the New York Times, Piepaper, Stuttgarter Zeitung, The Incidental and others are reinventing news on paper for our digital age.
Its unique mix of visual examples, insightful descriptions, and reports based on personal experiences make Turning Pages a compelling reference for anyone currently working as a designer or in the media industry.
