A Concise History of Graphic Design by Richard Hollis, Also A Load Of Bull: an englishman’s adventures in spain by Tim Parfitt – Condé Nast

A concise history of graphic design



Russian born Mehemed Fehmy Agha directed the use of the first full-colour photo vogue used was in 1932, a trend which has been religously adherd to ever since.


Agha who was a Conde Nast art director in the 1930s who pioneered magazine design, making series of double page spreads apposed to a sequence of individual pages

Agha left Conde Nast Publications in 1943, after Nast died in 1942, and became a successful freelance consultant.

when looking at magazine design, this book gave me some inspiration for my magazine’s genre: indulgence, also giving insight to the rock ‘n’ roll juggling act of the editorial director and has enhanced my outlook on design, I think we all have something to learn from the Madrileños

Today I decided to make a rendition of a Vogue issued in June as to get a feel for the designing of a magazine [ thats me in the tucks, kinda of a bad resolution, you get the idea ]


The serif typeface used in the sub-headings is ITC American Typewriter,

Designer: Joel Kaden / Tony Stan, 1974

ITC American Typewriter™ Light belongs to the ITC American Typewriter™ Font Family which is part of the ITC Collection.

ITC American Typewriter font was designed by Joel Kaden and Tony Stan. It is an ode to the invention that shaped reading habits and the idea of legibility, the typewriter. A compromise between the rigidity of its ancestor and the expectations of the digital age, ITC American Typewriter font retains the typical typewriter alphabet forms, lending the font a hint of nostalgia

I think the VOGUE logotype uses a typeface known as Didot ( by Adrian Frutiger of Linotype ) as the foot on the vogue ‘G’ is very distinct, however the x-height seems slightly more exagerated in a quick glance of visual comparison
