Last week, CR attended the first birthday party of the Editorial Design Organisation (first covered here on the blog) writes CR art director, Paul Pensom. The EDO is a group formed to champion editorial design and provide support for students wishing to enter the industry. MagCulture‘s Jeremy Leslie is chairman for 2009 and he used the party to introduce the EDO DIY exhibition: a selection of tear-sheets from some of the most notable editorial design from the last year, as chosen by EDO members.
We were pleased to see the variety of work on show – big publishing houses and indie titles alike were represented.
Pentagram‘s Luke Hayman had a number of pieces exhibited, as did Wink projects’ Monocle and Case Da Abitare, though perhaps the most popular choice was Scott Dadich’s infographic-heavy work for Wired magazine.
