Backpacker Ask and ye shall receive: from Matthew Bates, Design Director at Backpacker, some work from their Adventure Travel issue.
We just finished up our Adventure Travel issue here at Backpacker. Because we are primarily a magazine that focuses on North American travel, it was a rare treat for us on the photography side to have the the entire world to explore. Berne Broudy (Iceland), Christopher Thomas (Austria), and Andreas Strauss (Austria) brought shot some of the worlds best unknown treks while Matthieu Paley traveled with a Chinese hiking club through the backcountry of China for us. I was also able to work with a great illustrator named Dushan Milic on a fun story about finding adventure right in your own backyard.

Can't wait to see what others are working on.




NEW WORK is a new recurring feature. We'll welcome anything that's gone to the printer recently, something you're especially proud of and think might be inspiring to the membership and readers of Grids. We'll note the credits and the publication and shine a little light on the latest and greatest in publication design.

Please reduce your layouts to no larger than 1200 pixels wide and don't forget to include all relevant credits and a little background (if you feel like). Send your submissions to and we'll post them as we get them.
