Magazine design and layout for WildTomato June 2011 issue

Once again, the highlight of designing this issue would have to be the cover. The cover photos keep going from strength to strength which is just great for us designing the cover. The combination of an energetic subject and the large amount of empty space gave us the freedom to play with the positioning and styling of the various cover elements.

After a little team chat about the design of the magazine we came to the conclusion that, when the magazine is printed, the columns closest to the spine get a little bit lost in the gutter, especially when placed next to a page with a full bleed image. With this in mind we thought we'd try a slightly different layout for the feature opening spreads; a 2 column layout... truly groundbreaking stuff! By dropping the first column on the opposite page it not only gave the hero image that little bit extra breathing space (which we love), but it also made the feature that little bit easier to start reading.
