Here comes Idealog 11
It's that time of the month. Well that time of the bi-month actually. New Issue of Idealog hits the streets on the 20th (you may get it a little sooner if you subscribe).
The team at Idealog do a sensational job. I love the design and art direction. The stories are interesting (even if sometimes they drive me nuts - I'll explain later).
Winning business magazine of the year was very gratifying to me. It reinforced how important the issue of creativity is in the commercial future of New Zealand (or where you live).
As a final note I think that it is also important to acknowledge how important developing a partnership with the production company Image Centre was in our original plan. The care and attention to detail they have put into the project has been consistently outstanding. They are a fascinating, fully integrated business from photography and design to pre-press, printing and finishing. When I was involved in the hands-on nothing was ever a problem or issue (especially when the deadlines were tight).
I didn't write a column this month but I did interview Steven Carden, Author of New Zealand Unleashed: The Country, Its Future and the People Who Will Get it There and I reviewed the book. Let me know what you think of the stories and the magazine.
(I've also resumed blogging on the Idealog site - I'm going to focus on issues relating to independent creatives…let me know what's on your mind).
