MAGS: Print Magazine, Cincinnati, OH

Print Magazine

Print is an iconic design and visual culture brand encompassing a venerated magazine, a website, premium book and e-book lines, and the Regional Design Annual, one of the most well-respected design competitions in the industry.
Founded in 1940, Print seeks to build a dialogue about design by detailing the intersections of art and culture. Rather than focusing on the how-to of design, the experts who write for Print cover the why—why the world of design looks the way it does, how it has evolved, and why the way it looks matters.
To fulfill its mission, Print focuses on a broad stroke of visual culture today, covering everything from publication design to interactive work, motion graphics, corporate branding, exhibitions, illustration and socially conscious design.
Print is sophisticated. Bold. Distinguished. Experienced. Savvy. The longest-running stateside graphic design publication, it has won five National Magazine Awards—the industry’s highest honor.
As the design world has evolved over the decades, Print has been right there with it, and will continue to evolve to bring its readers the best design writing from the most prominent authors, legends and critics in the field today. Print’s contributing editors and regular writers include such top design thinkers as Michael Dooley, Steven Heller, Claire Lui, Debbie Millman, Rick Poynor, Ellen Shapiro, Paul Shaw, Jude Stewart and Douglas Wolk.

BLOGS: Lady Gaga Shows all! Best Magazine Seller

Contesto aquí a las interesantes preguntas de un estudiante de la Universidad de Navarra, interesado por este blog y por terminar bien su carrera.

¿Cuándo comenzó con el blog?

Empecé muy tarde, en octubre de 2008.
La tendencia de los blogs empezó sobre 2005. En aquella época tenía demasiadas cosas en la cabeza. Ahí nació La Iguana Ilustrada, pero se quedó en dos post. Tres años después, empecé a reflexionar un poco más sobre mi actividad diaria. Hasta hoy.

¿Podría decirnos algo sobre usted, que es su autor? Por ejemplo, la trayectoria profesional.
Soy redactor jefe del departamento de Infografía de EL MUNDO del Siglo XXI.

¿Cuál es el número de visitas diarias que tiene? ¿Mensuales?
Nunca me ha preocupado eso. Más bien lo hago para compensar mi falta de memoria. Lo planteo como mi cuaderno de notas. Creo que es muy útil. Llegué a plantearme cerrarlo al público, pero bueno, está abierto, lo que hace que te lo tengas que trabajar un poco más.
Por no dejarte sin contestación: veo que no llego a 10.000 páginas al mes.

¿Desde dónde le visitan?
Lo miro. En este momento el top 5: España, México, Argentina, Colombia y Chile.

¿Cuál es su entrada más visitada?

La entrada más vista es ‘ICON: Biohazard’. Es un post sobre el icono del Biohazard, el peligro biológico.
La explicación creo que viene por las búsquedas de los fans del grupo de hardcore punk de Brooklyn.
Supongo que presentar un post como este con Lady GaGa superará al de Biohazard. Veremos.

Para dejar un postre periodístico, la entrada sobre una foto que mostraba el lugar de un atentado en Afganistán fue la más vista hasta que llegó el Biohazard.

Lady Gaga, Best Magazine Seller.

¿Qué tipos de entradas son las que más éxito pueden tener?
No lo sé. Hablando de periodismo es difícil saberlo. Sobre todo porque tengo muy poco retorno de la gente. La comunicación en la red se está convirtiendo en un inmenso monólogo. Digo esto (blog), aparece por todos sitios (Twitter), unos pocos contestan algo interesante, la mayoría contesta alegremente (Facebook), que está bien, pero creo que ese no es el objetivo de la comunicación. En este sentido, me parece interesante la propuesta de Quora. Veremos cómo evoluciona.

“According to the Audit Bureau of Circulations, Gaga was the runaway hit at the newsstand in 2010 for monthly and biweekly magazines. The results don’t extend all the way through the end of the year, and they do vary (figures for Condé Nast titles go through November; Hearst titles through October). But it’s safe to say no celebrity will catch up in time to match Gaga’s strong and steady performance throughout the year.”

1000 TIME Covers: Thinking Inside the (Red) Box
Wednesday, October 27, 2010
Helen Mills Theatre
137-139 West 26th Street (between 6th & 7th Aves), NYC

7:00 – 8:30 PM, doors open at 6:30

Arthur Hochstein was the Design Director of Time magazine for 15 years, through the end of 2009. During his time there he designed over 1000 covers, including some of the most memorable magazine images of recent years. His iconic cover designs include everything from OJ Simpson, 9/11, the War in Iraq, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama. And although the covers of Time included some of the best illustrators and photographers in the world, many of the covers were photo-illustrated by Hochstein himself, who created numerous humorous and pointed images.

Like a modern day version of classic Esquire cover designer George Lois, Hochstein wielded irony, wit, provocation, and powerful imagery to create what was, week after week, the most seen and talked about piece of print real estate in the business. Hochstein will be presenting a retrospective of his cover work at Time in a presentation hosted by the Society of Publication Designers on October 27 in New York City. “1000 Time Covers: Thinking Inside the (Red) Box” will be a unique behind the scenes look at the creation of the Time cover.

Here’s a slideshow of a dozen of our favorite Time covers designed by Arthur Hochstein over the past 15 years.

Harper’s Bazaar, December 2009: “Twilight”

People of all ages sunk their teeth into the Twilight saga. At the forefront of the vampire phenomenon were Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson, who graced Harper’s Bazaar’s December subscriber cover in a rare shot together. Harper’s Bazaar was the only monthly magazine to feature the couple on a cover. While the epic image played on the idea of courtship, it was given extra heat due to their real-life romance.

The Atlantic, May 2010: “Fat Nation”
Marc Ambinder uses the story of his own battle with obesity to comment on America’s long and losing war against fat. We wanted an image that presented obesity as a truly national epidemic, one that would plant the problem squarely at the feet of Americans. Alex Ostroy’s image of an obese Statue of Liberty highlights the national scope of the problem with a dash of wit.

National Geographic, April 2010: “Water: Our Thirsty World”
To create a just-dunked effect for the cover of National Geographic’s April 2010 special issue, “Water: Our Thirsty World,” executive editor William Marr and staff photographer Mark Thiessen started with a shiny slab of white Formica coated with car polish. Artfully spritzed water drops beaded up and posed through many lighting experiments and photos, then the famous yellow rectangle and the cover type took their places in the image. That’s not all that happened, but the rest has something to do with magic.

New York

New York, September 28, 2009: “HATE”
New York’s Obama “HATE” cover takes Shepard Fairey’s campaign “HOPE” poster and turns it on its head to reflect the political realities of fall 2009. A collection of words used on signs at Obama protests (“imposter . . . Hitler . . . parasite-in-chief”) were hand-painted and then digitally placed onto a photograph of Obama, while the word “hate” replaces “hope” at the base of the image. The cover caused controversy for scrawling hateful words across the face of the president, and it certainly showed in stark fashion the public vitriol that emerged so loudly in some quarters in the months since Obama’s election.
