Brilliant Design: Kudos to Boston Magazine

I am in awe of Brian Struble, design director at Boston Magazine; Liz Noftle, deputy design director; and the inspired photographer Mitch Feinberg. They created the cover of the May issue, and it's stunningly perfect and perfectly stunning in all good ways.

I caught a glimpse of a spread from "The Shoes We Wore" inside. Scott Lacey, Boston's photo editor shot each shoe individually and used the images from 15 pairs of shoes as graphics accompanying the owner's stories printed there. I love how the design ties in and reflects the cover, while also highlighting the individuals reflected in each pair of shoes. The rest of the individual shoe photos and the runner's stories that accompanied them will be online starting Tuesday, April 30th.

For a fascinating look at how Boston pulled it all together, visit Behind Our May Boston Marathon Cover. There are links to buy an individual copy of the magazine and to receive word when the planned poster is available.

Wow. Just look what design can do.

I have long been kindly disposed toward Boston Magazine, because they once complimented a filksong I wrote, and quoted it.
