Editorial design is part of graphic, all editorial work is created to be printed and specialized in laying out compositions applied in different applications like books, magazines, newspapers, and more. In this post you will see a few samples of awesome editorial design applied on magazines.

Volta Magazine

Created by Francesco Muzzi, Giacomo Gambineri, and Matteo Gualandris

We had to design a magazine about alternative energy sources.

Our main concept was to put everything in an historical perspective, showing how some of the energy sources we now consider as "alternative" were once the most common, showing how the future could get and finally showing the present as just a point in a long evolutionary process.

The parts about the past have a yellowish background and make use of b/w images, drop caps and a rigid grid. The parts about the present have a white background and use mostly photos and some little infographics with a more complex and versatile grid. The parts about the future have no fixed background colour and are completely based on infographics.

Next Level Magazine

Produced in London | Creative Directors: Andy Ellis, Toby Dyson

Next Level is an international art magazine dedicated to showcasing photographic art, creativity and culture; the essential source for cutting-edge contemporary photographic art. An underlined theme is explored by the contributors in collaboration with Next Level to produce a personal interpretation.

The magazine was redesigned, departing from the magazine's previous treatment by making the imagery king by separating it out from the text elements. Its success saw February London appointed permanent designers (in a departure from the magazine's previous model of using guest designers) and received further recognition when selected as a finalist in the Magazine Design Awards.
