New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
as one of the 2005 editors for my university's student magazine (officially it's a newspaper, but the design, footprint, and publication schedule make it feel more like a magazine), i'm in charge of (re)designing the masthead.
this has been giving me grief and headaches for days now. i've got a few (half-finished/half-baked) ideas (the edges are very rough, stray points here and there):
...and the pdf
- i quite like the top one, but i worry about legibility.
- the r and t in the second one feel unresolved. and the o hangs off the edge.
- i've been staring at these for too long now. my brain's broken -- any feedback appreciated.
some afterthoughts/background info:
these seem a bit 'techy', maybe? the magazine's always had a sort of 'grungy/street' feel to it (which i would like to keep, but not as an overarching/exclusive visual theme) - it's a fairly low budget, politicised/lefty magazine, distributed for free in stands on and around campus)
