Geiger Magazine is a editorial design project created by Mads Thorsoe and it was a school assignment to redesign a magazine. The reason I am sharing this project is because it is an old one, it was shared in 2012, that's 4 years ago. It is fascinating to see that after over 4 years the style is still relevant and applicable today. That's a testament on the importance of simplicity. Dieter Rams famously said, good design is long-lasting. Compare that with software interface and you will understand the difference. I feel that UI design is getting to a level of maturity that will become long-lasting but still there's ways to go till it get to a point like a simple, yet elegant editorial design like this one.
