Channel

Our Channel is where you can learn more about life at H&W – see what inspires us and encourages us to share our thoughts. It usually concerns the world of design, but not always. Channels work best when there’s a back and forth, so please feel free to jump in.

We went to @issuesmagshop . The team traveled over to Dundas West to hang out with @nickydearest in her AMAZING magazine shop. We got a pre-opening viewing and we were very exited to hear about the store and the contents. She is so passionate and knowledged... Needless to say many titles came back with us… So excited that Issues is in the world and part of the community.

Magazines are organic. They are always changing and adapting. Renaissance magazine is no different. As we all know, sometimes it is the little changes that carry the most significance. Together with the editorial team of Renaissance, we adjusted some headline treatments to allow for a bit more positional flexibility in layouts. We reworked the section naming and how the reader navigates with the folios at the top of the page. We’re also thrilled to have Jori Bolton illustrating the fitness column for all four issues this year. First up: five active lifestyle personality types. The “Less is more” feature was a great opportunity to visually communicate the idea of simplicity. We lucked out with some incredible adult colouring book work submitted by one of the members. We are continually thankful to get to collaborate with illustrators like Jeannie Phan who illustrated “How to say no to negative people.” Lastly, we love the Travel section. Always really bright, strong photos to work with, and images that show off beautiful locations (once we saw the wide-sweeping photo from Inverness, Cape Breton we knew we had to run it large). And, that’s a wrap on Spring (almost)! We’re looking forward to more growth and changes, and the organic nature of magazines that always keeps us on our toes.
