This is a beautiful example of editorial design.
Bloomberg Business Week published a commemorative edition after the death of Steve Jobs. It has quite rightly won a series of design awards both here and in the USA for it’s perfectly judged layout and pace. Admittedly the designers had some seriously good looking content and words to play with but you have to hand it to them, it works.
The publishers had the balls too to run the entire magazine without a single ad. In this day and age of diminishing ad revenues, that’s a courageous move.
