Redesign: Legatus Magazine

I’M DELIGHTED with the results of the redesign of Legatus Magazine.

It’s a publication distributed to a limited but powerful group of Catholic business leaders.

The redesign has been a long-term project. Actually, I began working on it last April, with Editor Patrick Novecosky and designer Shawna Kunz.

I couldn’t be more thrilled with the first issue. It’s colorful. It’s crisp. It’s contemporary. It’s bold. All of those qualities we had worked on when I visited with Patrick and Shawna last spring in Ave Maria, FL.

A half dozen pages from the first issue follow. If you want to see the entire final proof of the inaugural issue, let me know and I’ll be happy to send you a link!

Thanks, Patrick and Shawna…for a wonderful redesign experience and a great first issue!

Video: Improving cover design

AT NEWSPAPERS, we really don’t do cover pages, do we? Or…do we?

How about that football tab?

Or the special advertising section for Memorial Day?

Or that feature front on New Year’s Day?

OK…yes…we do cover design.

So, here’s a piece—using the front of a photo magazine—on how you can do it better.

I like the way this video breaks down the steps in the process. And one of the things it stresses has long been a principle I teach others: You create a better design by what you take away…not what you add.

Watch. Learn. Enjoy.
