The Hollywood Reporter Redesign

 The Hollywood Reporter redesign. Published by the Nielsen Company.   Reyman Studio was awarded a Gold Medal for Best Redesign in the B to B category at the FOLIO: 2008 OZZIE Awards competition for our redesign of The Hollywood Reporter.   Our assignment to redesign The Hollywood Reporter, a daily paper which reports on the business of Hollywood, was, essentially, to bring the publication into the 21st century. Publications need to be a product of their time. The new look begins with a new logo; authoritative, accessible and immediate.   Next we had to consider the pacing of the magazine. We introduced various new visual navigation aids to help the reader find that information quickly. There’s a new, “What’s Inside” box on the cover with summaries of articles inside. There are skyboxes above the logo for articles of interest inside and there are small boxes placed in various locations which lead the reader to reviews and other sections.  A major element of the redesign was in choosing new, versatile, contemporary typefaces with classic lines. These typefaces can handle all the various typographic needs of the magazine with clarity and dignity, making every page easy to read and navigate. We considered many typefaces and settled with beautiful, sturdy, eminently readable faces designed by Cyrus Highsmith of The Font Bureau.

TV Guide Magazine Redesign

 For the complete TV Guide redesign, I worked in collaboration with my good friend Bob Newman as well as Katherine Dillon and Kate Thompson. The project was completed and relaunched in April, 2010. Some of our goals were to make all the pages easier to read whether they were in the news section or the daily grid listings; more navigable and more accessible. We wanted to make the pages exciting and visually inviting. Bob and I helped close the first issue. The team at TV Guide did a brilliant job designing the new pages. Art Streiber photographed the cast of Glee for the launch issue.   Review from The NY Post, on the TV Guide redesign, November 14, 2010   TV Guide is living its second life fully, with great style. Layouts and graphics rival those of any title in the born-again entertainment sector, and it's now a perfect fit for anyone's TV nest. Unlike the clunky little midget of a magazine of yesteryear, TV Guide offers a fast and smooth visit to loads of eye candy and news nuggets on stars and shows. An added plus: friendly and handsome listings that are easy to read in dim TV viewing environments.

Far Eastern Economic Review Redesign

 Far Eastern Economic Review redesign. Published by Dow Jones.   Dow Jones hired us to redesign the Far Eastern Economic Review and design its first two issues. It was decided that we would turn the 4 color weekly magazine into a monthly 'journal' style magazine (uncoated paper, black and white interior, perfect bound). The project was very well received and successful in its goals.  The newly developed family of typefaces called Mercury, by the Hoefler and Frere-Jones type foundry, was used here.
