I was art director on IDFX magazine design for over a year. Targeting interior design professionals, it was based in London. I evolved the monthly design and explored styles fitting for each piece. When the project started, in a short time I absorbed a new team’s processes and design style. What’s more, I converted all files from Quark to InDesign. This required a lot of correction to style sheets. I designed the whole issue single-handedly to a high standard in just 9 days. Co-operating with the team, we nipped any issues in the bud for the next issue. It’s been a number of years and since, IDFX has been discontinued but you can subscribe to FX magazine here.
Also see this issue of luxury lifestyle title, The Wealth Collection. I was challenged to give each piece its own feel within the overall design. For this issue I used photography as inspiration. I kept most palettes 2-colour, taking into consideration the adverts they accompany. Connoisseur was image-heavy and required some photo-editing. David Bailey requested his piece was very simply laid out. Therefore I let photography speak for itself and accented it with magenta. I made this complement the Kate Moss cover.
To sum up, working on The Wealth Collection and IDFX magazine design is when I developed my breadth as a designer.
