The Atlantic's Redesign

The Atlantic's Redesign


The Atlantic has had eight redesigns in its 151 years. James Bennet writes in his editor's note, that the November issue's new design is, "...the eighth effort to harmonize The Atlantic's style with its substance and the timbre of the times."

The design was done by Pentagram and in that same issue Michael Bierut's article A Question of Balance describes the magazine's new look.

Also, this week Pentagram posted a behind-the-scenes look at their efforts in finding what Bierut calls, "the right visual analogue for a distinctive editorial voice."

If all that coverage still leaves you wanting more, here's a slideshow on The Atlantic's site called 151 Years of Atlantic Covers.
