Layouts of the forthcoming Eye magazine on the studio wall
While we’re working on the magazine we stick layouts on the meeting room wall, to get a sense of the structure of the issue. The theme of the centre well of Eye 72, out later in June, is illustration – in particular ‘The designer as illustrator’. For more details, sign up for the editor’s newsletter, which we’ll be sending out later this week.

Star Trek’s sci-fi geekery sugars the science pill of the San Fran mag
Here at Eye Towers we’re all too aware of the joys (and limitations) of making a magazine with a small team, writes Simon Esterson, so it’s always good to be reminded how the big boys do it.

Gems from a master of magazine and newspaper art direction
There has been a lot of talk about golden ages on the Eye blog recently, writes Simon Esterson, and at last night’s D&AD conversation between editor Patrick Baglee and designer David Hillman, another golden age flashed before the audience’s eyes: the golden age of magazines and magazine art directors.

Cutting some Slack for the AR

Cutting some Slack for the AR

A framework that’s more than just a (projected) shadow of its former self
The Architectural Review, the 113-year-old monthly known simply as ‘the AR’ by its visually aware audience, has had a tough time of it over the past few years, writes Simon Esterson. Changes in ownership and a loss of design direction left it looking like an also-ran in a field it once dominated. I’ve been a keen follower of the AR since its Manplan issues (see Eye no. 54 vol. 14) sparked my interest in both architecture and magazine design in the school art room nearly 40 years ago, so it is very encouraging to see the redesigned April issue emerge phoenix-like from the inferno that is contemporary magazine publishing.

This is it: time to get physical with paper and ink
Since we took ownership of Eye last April, writes Eye editor John L. Walters, my fellow director (and art director) Simon Esterson has made a point of seeing every issue on and off press. Yesterday, Simon set off at the crack of dawn to Beacon Press in Uckfield, where the machines were being prepared for the latest Eye, a type special.
