Contributing as a designer…

In the Magazine cover section, the judges were really looking for simplicity in design. One thing that Tippi Thole mentioned while reviewing the cover pages was the importance of choosing display type that works well with the package as a whole. Another thing that the judges mentioned about the cover designs was keeping in mind the with placement of type while designing. 

         For overall design of magazine, the judges narrowed the picks down to two entries. Bill Gaspard said for one of the issues that he liked how designers took a very dry topic and made it interesting with help of visuals and display type. It was worth noting that innovation and new approaches to visually telling stories also contributes to the journalism. Tippi also commented on the use of display typography, saying that type should be sophisticated and consistent throughout.
