To me this is very attractive. Lovely bare feet, black nail polish, nice hair cut, piercing blue eyes, toned down make up, colourful dress. She looks fantastic.




Pentagram’s partner Michael Bierut has redesigned music industry magazine Billboard, creating a new identity and editorial format for the magazine. The magazine’s 1966 logo has been replaced with a brand new one, that has been set entirely in lower-case with tighter spacing in-between each letter.

The colored circles in the logo have also been dropped—making the print version look more “grown-up” and “serious”—however, the color version of the logo will still be used on the Billboard website and in its marketing materials, according to Pentagram. The editorial layout of the magazine has also been reorganized and restructured—“Headers are paired with graphic bars inspired by the charts. Page layouts are opened up, with graphs, pull quotes and other data appearing in the margins,” said the design studio. Another major part of the redesign was to remake the magazine’s charts to be more “easily understood”.

The new layout for the magazine will hit newsstands on 26 January 2013.


The cover of issue 42 features Tom Hardy’s character Forrest Bondurant from the new John Hillcoat film, Lawless – a “downhome bootlegging caper” say LWL. The image was carved into Japanese Ply wood, inked up and printed by the magazine’s design team. The film also shows some of the woodcut section openers that appear in the magazine. The woodcut team in full: Angus McPherson (LWLies designer), Fabrizio Festa (TCOLondon designer) and Eve Lloyd Knight (TCOLondon design intern).
