99U Quarterly Magazine releases issue 6 and it's safe to say that is one of the most inspirational editorial pieces out there. Very heavy in typography, keeping the consistency in colors, making and breaking the grid.
For the past few weeks, I have been collecting visual references in branding as well as editorial design and sketching some ideas for a significant redesign for the Abduzeedo brand and site. I have been refining some of the concepts, at least, in my head they are crystal clear. For the brand, I want to make it friendlier and more abstract. For the site and overall branding collaterals, I want to keep it very simple and minimalist. So for this post, I want to share some of the visual references I have been collecting for the new website.
Most of the images for this post are editorial design examples I found on Pinterest. Each one has a particular area that caught my attention. It might have been the typography, the white space, or the way they call out a specific part of the content by the use of color. One characteristic they all share in common, the clean look with little to no color (just black and white) for content besides imagery.
I hope you like the direction we are heading and I will be sharing more about the process very soon. Till then, enjoy these editorial design inspiration.
