Approach

Magazine design & sustainability.

As Luxinnovation gives sustainability a very high priority, they chose this topic for its first edition of the magazine. It became our goal to design the magazine in the most sustainable way as possible.

In terms of layout, we created outlined illustrations in order to use less ink in printing and proposed to print less copies and use the digital version to reach more audience.

Look & feel
Augmented reality

QR codes & augmented reality.

Given the sanitary and ecological crisis we are living in, encouraging interactive magazines can be a real springboard for engagement.

Creating a magazine 4.0 makes the object more intriguing and therefore engages the reader a lot more.

Thanks to AR, the interactivity of a magazine will give a whole new dimension.

When scanning certain images we enhanced the contents by showing interviews directly from the print version. This is also very sustainable because it helps us save layout space, hence decreasing the number of pages.

Magazines

Same magazine, different topics.

Each issue follows the same design principle: light grey background, strong imagery in the forefront, highlighting one of the main subjects and the famous Luxembourgish cross symbol.
