We’ve chatted to design studio Córdova Canillas previously, recognising its work to be at the forefront of the publication renaissance. The new issue of Fuet magazine, the publication which explores “food and its peripheries”, sees the studio doing what it does best.
Córdova Canillas have consistently art directed Fuet publications. The fact that when you Google the publication the first suggestion is, “Fuet font” a testament to its design prowess. This issue, the publication’s fourth, discusses two subjects we all know very well, the internet and food.
“Food is being linked to its approach on the internet and social medias,” says the publication. “We see how it connects us with the culture 2.0 and how it allows us to share and communicate with the entire world.” The issue does this by producing cleverly candid content such as “The Internet Made Me Famous. Outrageous foods made popular by the web,” or “When Spam Came In A Can,” rather than your e-mail inbox.
This issue sees Córdova Canillas play with design potential by bending the rules. Illustrations lay over text with acute precision so that the content remains readable. Tupperware is photographed to appear luxurious, on the cover a Chinese takeaway box’s chopsticks elegantly lean over the title.
Previously Cordova Canillas’ has said: “No good publication is without good content”, and this issue of Fuet epitomises this design ethos.
