Creative Review (CR) Magazine and logo redesign
The April 2010 issue of Creative Review launches a full redesign for the look and feel of the Creative Review brand (for better alignment with their website). We still need to get our hands on a copy, but on first look it seems very well thought out, with careful considerations to size, paper, grids, vibrant photography, and typography. CR Blog provides a very interesting read on the motivations behind the fresh new look.
“…The redesign was done by our art director, Paul Pensom, but Paul Barnes worked with us a consultant on the typography, advising us on typeface choices, page furniture and the logo. For drop caps and other ornaments, we have used characters from a new project of his involving the revival and digitisation of the St Bride type archive (more on this in a later post). We’ve just used Caslon Shaded but there will be a lot more faces available in the future…” —CR Blog
