Awesome photography in The Absolute Sound issue 223

May 29, 2012

Joel Salcido shot this feature for The Absolute Sound, who are one of the clients we provide magazine design and production services to at October Custom Publishing. Love the stepped levitation. Would love my household objects to levitate in real life, but oh well.

LOCALE magazine’s latest issue

May 29, 2012

Lots of beautiful photography in the latest issue of LOCALE. This is it’s 30th issue of this digital magazine, so expect to see a redesign of the magazine in the next year. While it looks good now, I think it would benefit from a redesign that focuses on readability for screen.

Centro Y Sur magazine launches on Texterity, we’re very happy with how it looks (because we made it)

We spent FOREVER working on the internal nav for this – and then there’s Texterity’s own nav tools which come as standard in this particular hosting model. So I’m not going to say too much more – you can read the whole issue (and back issues) here. Some more pages from issue 4 after the jump. (more…)
