When looking for inspiration and motivation I often dive into the archives of TED Talks. There is so much good content to consume across all sorts of fields. Tonight I watched Sagmeister's "Happiness Through Design" and in this video he makes two powerful statements about happiness in relation to design:
Being happy while experiencing design.
Being happy while designing.
These two ideas were inspiring to me and I thought I would share them both. I hope these can inspire happiness in your everyday life. Sagmeister has several interesting studies and experiments dealing with happiness and I highly recommend checking them out.
Just a placeholder image currently. This just was evocative of the aesthetic I was leaning towards for the feature article of the current issue. I want to evolve Macworld into a more humanized publication and the use of photography containing human subjects with tech devices will help push it in the right direction while still maintaining the tech magazine appeal.
The table of contents page needed to be more focused and contained. I wanted to highlight the feature spread and create hierarchy within the other articles. Once again the image is a placeholder for future photography as well as the bottom bar.
