Relaunches

Riba Journal

Sector: building

Publisher: Builder Group and Royal Institute of British Architects

Frequency: monthly

Price: £5.50

The RIBA Journal has gone from being A4 to a shorter, wider format. Designer Stefano Arata said: “A4 is the worst possible size for a magazine. It doesn’t get an emotional reaction. It’s just a piece of stationery. The magazine is very busy with ads so I was trying to brand the editorial with a strong grid and a small slug. Because adverts often feature san serif type faces, we are using slab serif, which is a strongly architectural design. It helps differentiate between the ads and the editorial. There’s a scheme of black, red and yellow which are strong colours and are familiar to the language of architectural design.”
