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.

Rian Hughes explores magazine hand-lettering in the latest issue of Eye
Custom type was not an occasional indulgent art in the pre-digital dark ages, it was the norm, says Rian Hughes in ‘Drawn to be wild’ (Eye no. 71 vol. 18).

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.

Is print really dirtier than online?

Is print really dirtier than online?

Barney Cox’s technology feature from Eye 70 looks at green issues
When it comes to the environmental impact of communication media, print is usually singled out as the dirty old man, writes Barney Cox in ‘Foot prints’, Eye no.70. vol. 18. It is understandable why that should be. In the shiny, weightless online world, everything happens in the twinkling of an eye and it is possible to instantly view a Web page or email created on the other side of the world. With the rise of the iPhone, Wifi and 3G dongles, this viewing can be anywhere, as long as you have battery life and a few bars of signal.
