My Favo(u)rite Magazine
My Favo(u)rite Magazine was conceived by Andrew Losowsky and Jeremy Leslie to raise funds for US editorial designer Bob Newman, who suffered a serious accident earlier this year. We put out a call to editors and art directors around the world, asking them to decide on a single issue of one magazine as their favourite. 88 people responded with words and images of all types of magazines – major names, small independents, current magazines and older titles.
The challenge designing the pages was to present similar material across 64 pages and give it some pace and excitement. This was achieved using a grid system to vertically seperate the individual entries and making sure each spread has a single large image to lead it alongside significantly smaller pictures. The magazines run in aphabetical order, providing some intriguing random combinations of magazines and alos highlighting the several repeated entries.
What started as a fund-raising experiment became a genuinely interesting reflection of the shared passion of editorial cretaives for their craft. Thanks to all the contributors and to the Newspaper Club, the Society of Publishing Designers, the Huffington Post, Eye Magazine and 29 Street Publishing for the support that meant more funds can go direct to Bob Newman’s fund.
