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. It’s already got the photography and layout down, but on certain monitors can be a struggle to read in places… and increasing the font size would undoubtedly also increase the page count, a value add for our client for just a little added production time long-term.

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

September 23, 2011

One of the many projects I’ve been involved with at October Custom Publishing is the page design, production and art direction – in fact pretty much all aspects of production – of Centro Y Sur magazine. A digital publication from the mind of Jason Z. Guest, we’re currently in our final week of production of issue 4. I thought I’d share a pieces from the last few issues. Seriously, this isn’t just a shameless plug, we’re really interested in hearing your feedback on the magazine’s usability, especially when it comes to navigation and ease of use. 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…)

We recently put together another issue of LOCALE magazine, which we create in it’s entirety here at October Custom Publishing – magazine design, editorial, production… you name it. Now I have to not fall asleep … lots of reading to catch up on, and Natalie Word, GQ, WIRED’s 500+ mb iPad issue, Popular Science, Adobe and other related posts to write. (more…)

LOCALE magazine project update

April 28, 2010

Read in the LA Times a while back about an architect who designed his house in order to be able to park his 1984 Ferrari 512 BBi Boxer in his living-room…which led to the idea for a story on out of this world, custom garages. We were lucky enough to be able to get the architect of the Ferrari garage – Holger Schubert of Archisis – to shoot some more images of his house for us. A few more pages from the newest issue after the jump. (more…)

LOCALE magazine project

March 10, 2010

I’ve been working on this project for a couple of months now – it’s been an interesting experience creating this mini (digital) magazine. I’ll go into more detail later (because I’m lazy and it’s almost 3am), but here are a few pages from the latest issue which went out a couple of weeks ago. I’m excited about where this magazine could go design-wise, and the potential for experimenting once the production process has smoothed out. (more…)
