In the beginning of 2018 Texas Monthly launched its redesign, both in print and online. The goal was “to better capture the beauty and variety of Texas, in all its bright, zany glory.”
The redesign intended to bring a more appealing and clean look with a generous use of white space, allowing photographs and illustrations space to shine. Sections were reorganised and adjustments were made to improve legibility and navigation in the magazine.
And when it comes to the magazine and the website we can now answer, with great confidence, Yes, they are beautiful enough. In both mediums we’ve done a great deal of work to make Texas Monthly visually more appealing. Most noticeably, we’ve brought in new typefaces and added more white space to allow our gorgeous photos and illustrations to shine. Words are still important—of paramount importance—to us, but readers will no longer be faced with the monolithic walls of type that too often dominated our layouts. –– TexasMonthly.com
