Area 17: Spin

Posted by Rob Alderson,

It’s the kind of brief that only comes along every so often – the chance to overhaul the look and feel of a magazine that’s been doing its thing for more than two decades. First published in 1985, Spin is devoted to unearthing new musical talent and exploring the trends and themes that go hand-in-hand with musical culture. Area 17 was tasked with “the re-conceptualisation of the visual identity, as well as mobile, website and iPad design” and working with Everything Type Company they’ve nailed it with a clean, creative design that dovetails with the mag’s stated aim of being “aspirational not elitist, enthusiastic yet discerning.”
