What makes a good publication design? “In my projects, content certainly has a priority. Consideration of what is worth publishing (especially in a printed form) is crucial nowadays. The content should provide the basis to build upon. The awareness of how it is published should be visible. Furthermore the form, including material, layout or typography, should be suitable and support the concept of a publication.”
