Designtree turns Oh magazine into a high-end bookazine

Oh is the magazine of Sansyl, one of the largest publisher of soft erotic magazines worldwide. For the 13th edition, Designtree was asked to redesign the magazine and turn it into a bookazine with a more artistic feeling.

We added new fonts, rearranged the lay-out and set up a new cover design. We also decided to loose the soft color palette, the ‘O’ element on the previous cover images and make more bold statements in typography and styles.

The new Oh is launched December 2018 and offers a mixture of soft erotic, high end photography by Carin Verbruggen and Ferry Drenthem Soesman, Peter Lindberg and McKenzie James and literature of, amongst others, writer Arnon Grunberg.

Design of the week-item: Behind The Relaunch Of New York Times Magazine

The re-imagined New York Times Magazine gives us a view behind the relaunch. The magazine which is 119 years old has nearly four million people readers in print every weekend. The re-imaged magazine includes an ever-so-slightly modified logo and a new suite of typefaces by the Danish typographer Henrik Kubel. A dream job and a great job.
