Guimarães Jazz 2010 Journal

Colurs and unexpected design really make me excited about trying similar design. Pages are really well constructed and it rectengulars provide reader to focus on the important points. Here is an explanations from editor:

“We were challenged once again to do a journal about Jazz, in which there were three different information categories: the main text – an historic/speculative one; the artist’s biographies and concert dates; additional events. Like last year’s edition, we were asked to make the main text be accompanied by the artist’s biographies, so, as a solution, we’ve decided to take the idea of overlapping the texts as the main concept of the journal. The overlapping works as a way of interfering and/or covering each other (in this case the pages) like what happens in Jazz music. We have different “layers” of information that interact with each other by this process of covering/uncovering. The different page formats appeal to the idea of different personalities that are in interaction with each other on one common ground, like an orchestra, resulting in one editorial object, in this case, the Jazz Journal.”
