Editorial Design


Magazines report both long and short stories. Texts and images are very different modalities for sharing information. If presented correctly, the combination of these two can complement each other, enhancing the overall reader experience. It takes a throughly thought-out, and carefully worked presentation to optimise the text-image relationship.


A truely Accessible Magazine.

The governement of the district of Upper Bavaria has a long history making cultural activties accessible for all. The magazine »Kultur inklusive!« showcases new projects. The first issue did experiment with braille typography and sign language. The second issue incorporates an Easy-to-Read-Text (ETR). This enables cogntive impaired readers to understand and take pride in the coverage of their theater projects.

Our aim was to create an appealing magazine for both target groups: the social workers and the group with divers impairments (dementia, reading difficulties etc). While working on the project we figured the common rules for ETR don’t work and will even exclude parts of the target group. Finally we come up with two non-redundant text versions. The ETR text is a supplementary information for all. We tested the publication with the translation team Einfach verstehen: they loved it and the magazine has become a best-case example in the community.

Development of Magazine

Design of the Magazine „de facto“

Separate material is provided to cater for institutional customers. The public appearance is more reduced and clear compared with the other marketing materials. The monthly magazine “de Facto” illustrates clear and structured information about selected subjects. Graphics, rather than images, are used. Even in seemingly dull topics like financial communication, there are countless possibilities to make facts and tables look appealing.
