Azimuts 40-41 – Design Research Journals. A Panorama

Azimuts 40-41 – Design Research Journals.  A Panorama | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Despite the impression given by its format and density, the central dossier of the bilingualAzimuts 40-41 – Design Research Journals. A Panorama has a quite modest objective: the provision of an initial survey of journals devoted to design research. Rather than approaching design research frontally, the editorial team has investigated one of the modes of expression favoured by research: the periodical, the supposed paragon and yardstick of academic excellence.

How a print mag’s front page retains its power in a digital age

How a print mag’s front page retains its power in a digital age | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

While it's clear print is here to stay a little longer, the debate has recently shifted towards how we ensure it does by innovating approaches to magazine-making. Gym Class Magazine has continually touted the magazines that push the format and in its latest issue, which came out last week, one article discusses how publications are using the power of magazine covers to stand out in the digital age. Written by Colin Crummy (film editor at i-D and contributing editor at Esquire), the journalist draws upon on recent examples including Kim Kardashian’s Break the Internet cover for_ Paper to illustrate the impact covers can still have. The magazine has kindly let us reprint an extract from the article below.

If you’re yet to be acquainted with the weird and wonderful world of Toiletpaper then allow us to introduce you.

From this came Toiletpaper Magazine, and before long their work had spread across the fashion and art industries like wildfire, picking up the attention of a number of big-time brands along the way.

Here 2014: Graphic designer Mirko Borsche | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Going through renowned graphic designer, Mirko Borsche’s portfolio is like when you decide to clear out your bedroom. Instead of an efficient tidy-up and throw-out, you spend hours pouring over every object, photo, book, handwritten note you own. The sheer volume of work Mirko has produced over the years is incredible, mostly because the standard is so high, I just hope some of his creativity seeps into my eyes while I view his work.

We talk erotica with Folch Studio ahead of the launch of Odiseo Vol 4 this week

We talk erotica with Folch Studio ahead of the launch of Odiseo Vol 4 this week | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Every time a new erotic title comes through the door we wonder how long they’ll survive. There’s so many “intelligent” magazines out there with a penchant for nudity that we assume only a few will last more than a couple of issues – even if the quality is superb. One title in the erotic stable that continues to grow and develop is Odiseo, a publication from Barcelona’s Folch studio that’s more of a book than a magazine. In it you’ll find a sensitive approach to erotic subjects and a wealth of illuminating opinion pieces all of which subvert what we’ve come to define as erotic in the digital age.
