Great design leaps from the page
The design of digital or print publications, such as books, calendars, catalogs, coffee table books, comics, illustrations, magazines, and newspapers, plays a crucial role in attracting and engaging readers. The iF Design Awards showcase publications that are visually appealing while also functional and user-friendly. The right choice of fonts, size, spacing, colors, images enhances the readability and overall aesthetic of the publication. A well-designed publication should guide the reader’s eye through the content in a logical and effortless manner.
In digital publications, interactive features such as hyperlinks, animations, and videos can be used to enhance the user experience. Print publications can also incorporate tactile elements such as embossing or varnish to create a sensory experience for the reader. Ultimately, the design of a publication should be a seamless integration of form and function that effectively communicates the intended message to the reader.
