Wow. Luke Hayman's redesign of Vibe (via Mediabistro's Unbeige) is stunning.
From Pentagram's blog:
Working with Vibe editor-in-chief Danyel Smith, art director Mark Shaw, and photo editor Robyn Forest, Luke Hayman has developed a new format for the magazine that looks back to the original designed by Gary Koepke and subsequent redesigns by Robert Newman and Florian Bachleda.
“Vibe is an icon in the magazine world,” says Hayman. “This was an exciting opportunity to sample and remix the rich heritage of its famed design and photography.”
Bold. Sassy. Unapologetic with touches of sweet elegance.
For typography: Vibe Gothic, Leitura Display and Leitura. The Leitura family is one of my favorites by DSType. It's exciting to see it in use and in just the right amount.
Smart and sexy. I love!
