I was art director on idfx, an interior design professional’s magazine, for over a year, I evolved the templates and explored aesthetic styles fitting for each piece and the industry. When this originally started, in a pressed time I learned a new team’s processes, design and layout styles, converted from Quark to InDesign, set up style sheets and produced the whole issue single-handedly to a high standard in just 9 days. With the team, we nipped any issues in the bud for the next issue.
Also this issue of luxury lifestyle title The Wealth Collection challenged me to give each piece its own feel within the overall design. For this issue I used the photography as inspiration for each spread’s design, keeping most palettes 2-colour, taking into consideration the adverts they accompany. Connoisseur was very image-heavy and required some art-working as well, David Bailey requested his piece was very simply laid out, so I let the photography speak for itself and accented it with pure magenta to complement the Kate Moss cover.
