Ergonomics in Design magazine redesign


Brief: Besides updating the look of the magazine, the purpose of the redesign was to eliminate the need for art direction, so each issue could be laid out as part of a production process.

Each type of information used in articles (titles, descriptions, tables, pullquotes, etc.) was redesigned, and included in the style template. The redesigned features layout uses a flexible 2- or 3-column grid which can better accommodate different types of information.
