Inside 5280's Redesign

Inside 5280's Redesign

Since 1993, 5280 has provided coverage on Denver, Colorado to locals and visitors alike. This city magazine, which is named after Denver's elevation of 5,280 feet, has just finished their latest redesign with their most recent July issue.  We spoke with 5280 Art Director, Dave McKenna, about the team's process and how 5280 has evolved on both the editorial and design side.

Read on for Dave's answers and images from the redesign after the jump!
