A look at page numbering. The use of generous margins is also nice. I like the mystery of the numbers though. The human eye only reads the top half of a number, so these remain readable, whilst becoming a designerly feature in itself.
ELEMENTS MAGAZINE: Vogue Paris September 2011: French Connection
An editorial design for an artist & designer Shun Kawakami.
I like these designs because of the playful text design. The different typefaces definitely kept my attention and the minimal graphics was a nice addition to the overall layout. The different text weights gave contrast and visual hierarchy and each design was well balanced.
I like how the story takes the shape of letters, and those form another message. I could incorporate this into my magazine by kind of combining a feature story in the small text, but an ASF with the larger letter outlines.
