Interview is currently one of the most exciting examples of contemporary editorial design out there. Launched in 1969 by Andy Warhol, the original celebrity mag celebrated its 50th anniversary a few years back with a return to the original large-format page size, and continues at that size.
On the cover of the Autumn/Fall 2022 edition of Interview, it’s Nicki Minaj—shining red lollipop in hand, car in flames in the background. 'SUCK IT' reads the tiny lettering by the lollipop.
On the Journal:
Art director Kurt Woerpel runs through this issue’s typography.
‘This brief insight into the typography of Interview is a reminder how complicated it can be to create something that appears simple. And this is the secret to the magazine’s success: a simple concept fullfilled by a strong team passionate about refining their contributions into a large-format celebrity zine. Let’s call it Magazine of the Year.’
