Additional Information

Thousands of magazines, newspapers, and journals are launched every year, but only a handful survive. What gives these few newcomers their staying power: content? branding? design?

Art Direction and Editorial Design is an accessible and comprehensive guide to visual journalism—the design of magazines and newspapers, both in their print and online forms. Illustrated with case studies, examples, practical exercises, and tips, the book explains the fundamentals of editorial design and layout. It provides an overview of current editorial design practices and explains how design and production for publications is organized while also tackling broad issues that can often make or break careers in the field.

Subjects covered include branding, how to create layouts, handling copy and images, design and production skills, and trends in the field. Included are interviews with and profiles of such leading influential figures as Neville Brody, Tyler Brûlée, David Carson, Felix Dennis, Fernando Gutiérrez, and Eamonn McCabe, as well as examples of work by M.F. Agha, Alexey Brodovitch, Willy Fleckhaus, Henry Wolf, Cipe Pineles, and Fabien Baron.

There's an interesting magazine spread reproduced on page sixty of this fascinating book, it arrows only the typographic items like: folio, headlines, byline, body copy, credits, running heads, panel/sidebar copy, intro/second deck text, stand-first, pull quotes, captions/cutlines. Not arrowed are photos, illustrations, cartoons, graphics and other visual elements. I thought it was interesting because it sort of sums up the many items that publication designers work with all the time. Publications seem separate from other areas of print communication because of their regular appearance and they have a dedicated staff handling words and images. Because of this team effort it is not really practical to teach the subject in design college. The best learning curve is to join the editorial department of a title.

The book is essentially concerned with the look of publications and I thought it was impressively thorough in its coverage. Most of the illustration spreads... Read more
What I like most about the book is the diversity of ideas presented. Many of which I would never have created on my own. It is out the box thinking at its best. You might not use any of the ideas but the theories behind the ideas will take you far from where you would have gone without reading it.
I've been looking for a book that concentrated on Editorial Design.
I am very happy with this book. It presents a progressive sequential explanation of what a magazine/publication
is, it's parts, the language, terms and functions and roles of the Design team for a publication.

The examples are very good and the case studies represent some of the best known names in Editorial design history.
Varied styles, topics and genres are presented in a clear and concise way.

A great book for inspiration and for a better understanding of any designer interested in print and publications.
