Completely redesigned – with new size, new paper, new typography, and new logo – the April issue of Creative Review features a cover illustration by Anthony Burrill. Fittingly, the content focuses on new ideas for the magazine. Apart from size (which was figured to best maximize a size/cost/postage ratio), CR will also include a few new segments as they try to balance web and print life. New are two sections (“The Grid” and “Hi-Res”) designed to showcase the image potential in print. A new people profile also kicks off, subject one being David James, designed to detail a full career. The changes are certainly noticeable, and clearly also for the best.
The redesign was handled by art director Paul Pensom, with consulting aid by Paul Barnes in regards to typography.
