Magazine design and layout

Cinéma Théâtre Magazine

Client: Cinéma Théâtre Magazine
Field: Art & Entertainment
Task: Redesign
Year: 2009

Over the years, Cinéma Théâtre’s content deviated from its origins and swayed toward light entertainment. In addition, a growing number of full-colour entertainment magazines took away its market share. After changes in the magazine’s ownership, the new editor and his team looked for ways to refocus the magazine back to its original, professional roots.

I redesigned the magazine from the scratch, using the grid system, new colour scheme and new choices of type.




Magazine Design

B2B magazine

B2B magazine is a dedicated business magazine based in Canberra. I did the design and a bulk of the photography for issues #110 onwards.

Technical Specifications:
During this timeframe, the magazine was produced in InDesign CC using a consistent, but constantly evolving, style sheet, defining all text from story level to paragraphs and multiple levels of headlines to character level.

Design grids were used extensively, with attention to typography’s hierarchy and avoiding widows and orphans as much as possible.

In terms of automation, a well-styled table of content dynamically generated with hyperlinks to pages created for the magazine, and some common variables like issue numbers were generated and updated automatically.

The printer’s working space, Coated FOGRA 39, used for the document and all photos, which downsampled to 350 DPI and individually sharpened, retouched when necessary.
