Modern magazine design explored at the Hunter
Print media has come a long way since its inception, not just in terms of content, but also in terms of layout. Every now and then, publications get a “new look,” The Pulse being no exception.
If you’ve ever wondered what a zine is or have been curious about how a publication’s layout affects a reader’s interpretation, then plan to attend the program, “The Layers of Layout” on Jan. 15 at 6 p.m. at the Hunter Museum of American Art.
Lead by Aggie Toppins, assistant professor of graphic design at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, those in attendance will learn about the ever-evolving magazine genre and “how the design of images and text influences the way we interpret print media,” through the Hunter’s current exhibit “The New York Times Magazine Photographs.”
On display through Mar. 22, this exhibit is described as “a behind-the-scenes look at the collaborative, creative processes that have made this magazine the leading venue for photographic storytelling within contemporary news media.”
“Layers of Layout” will run approximately an hour and a half. The cost to attend is regular museum admission of $9.95.
