Blog / Chance Encounters On The Magazine Rack

This is just a quick reminder that as graphic designers, we would be very foolish to think that anything we do gives us any control over our visual surroundings, or helps “fight ugliness”. Anyone who has seen Helvetica, the documentary film by Gary Hustwit, knows whose quote I’m referring to. The most we can hope to achieve is nudge a little of the visual chaos in the right direction. My last post about the Twenty Tweetable Truths About Magazines made me discover these two images on Grids, the official Society of Publication Designers blog. They feature chance encounters between unrelated magazine covers creating new unexpected readings. I hope you have as much fun discovering them as I had.
