Eat your subdivision
Imagine my delight at finding a new magazine, and then discovering several striking page designs where image becomes type.
The article is about sustainable farming, where residential communities incorporate both a home and a working farm. The small squares in the illustration represent subdivisions of land but also spell out one of the words of the article.
The design is quirky but it’s also very clever.
While the concept in the article is hardly new, indeed I remember as a young lad watching men in their allotments (a kind of mini-farm), diligently growing vegetables, the trend seems to be gaining momentum.
I like how the callouts on the last two spreads play off the perspective used in the opening pages.
