Editorial design is the most inspiring area of design in my opinion. I know it’s a bold statement and totally based on personal opinion. I just feel that there’s an intrinsic beauty in typography and imagery with the primary goall of communicating something.
Simplicity is the biggest challenge for any designer. Well, at least it’s for me as I constantly battle to find ways to reduce elements, colors and pretty much anything without sacrificing usability. That’s why it’s difficult, however for some people it seems a bit easier, or they make it look easier, which highlights their talent. Ryan Anthony Ward is one of these designers and the B+W editorial design project he shared really illustrates that quite well. It’s pure typography and beautiful simplicity.
