Intelligence in Lifestyle

Grain Edit / Intelligence in Lifestyle Magazine

Intelligence in Lifestyle, an Italian magazine and supplement to the Il Sole 24 ORE newspaper, is one tasty piece of work. That striking cover above initially grabbed my attention, but inside is just as compelling.

Under the creative direction of Francesco Franchi, the magazine uses a strong structured grid and nicely combines illustration, logo design, typography and plenty of amazing info graphics. The entire thing leaves me wishing I could read Italian to follow along.

Francesco Franchi’s Flickr has more spreads, covers and general awesomeness.

Via the always fresh Portland-based Colorcubic.

He is really a super good inforgraphic designer! Also his thesis degree was so well done!

Fab post, thanks. I think the Rupert Murdoch cover is particularly strong. And although I agree that it would be nice to read along in Italian, I think sometimes not knowing a language helps you really concentrate on the design. Cheers

The cover illustration is a portrait of Rupert Murdoch by illustrator Tavis Coburn.

wow these look amazing!

This is amazing! I love the spreads and how timeless the illustrations and layouts are. Monocle magazine comes to mind, but these are even better!

yummmmmmmmmm

Design excellence.

Very nice! Somehow it reminds me of Brûlés MONOCLE …

Wow I’m Italian and I didn’t know about that magazine… Maybe because “IL Sole 24 Ore” is a financial newspaper, precisely the most important. And I hate financial stuff.

However awesome graphic design. For once I’m proud to be Italian!

Thanks
