Architect Magazine: Clean & Modern design

 

 

 The other day an architect friend passed me his copy of  Architect Magazine, and I fell in love with the visual design system for the publication. Overall, it's an incredible balance of white space, bold sans serif display type (haven't identified it yet!) and just makes you feel smart as you read it. The main piece in this month's issue uses data visualization in a fresh way, incorporating vector illustrations related to the theme of the article (sustainabiltity) and unconventional charts that make it fun to read, while still conveying the survey results. I'm not sure how Edward Tufte or Stephen Few would feel about it—probably would criticize the approach—but I give the designer a thumbs up for creating an experience worth reading through.
