Award: Wood Pencil

Wood Pencil / Magazine & Newspaper Design / Entire Magazines / 2007

Opinionated, writer-led and stuffed with visual delights, 'Varoom' is the definitive statement on visual communication. Regular features from acclaimed design critics and practitioners discuss contemporary illustration in its wider context and from different, even contentious, perspectives. 'Varoom' is not only a striking example of contemporary magazine design, it is also functional, coherent and readable. 'Varoom' uses distinctive custom-made headline typography, with a refined approach to text and layout. The eye-catching masthead – featuring a specially created font – delivers a strong sense of identity and difference. Fine paper is used throughout and sections are highlighted by the use of different paper stock, relating content to material.
