What makes a good publication design? “The coherency between ‘content’ and ‘container’ is the most important aspect of creating a good publication design. We often focus on looking at how original or attractive a project is, without considering the relation between the physical object and its content. Whatever the format, the materials or the techniques used, if the magazine or the book represents and enhances the content, in my opinion it can be considered a good project.”
