Applied Arts celebrates 30 years
The newly redesigned Applied Arts magazine is celebrating 30 years in the industry in its latest issue. With its new tagline Create. Celebrate., the visual communications magazine aims to speak directly to its mandate: to showcase inspiring work by the creative industry’s foremost thinkers and artists, both established and emerging.

The magazine’s new design directors Emily Tu and Edmund Ng (of Tung studio) are responsible for the new look, which includes a new logo set in Noe Display typeface by the Schick-Toikka foundry.

“In the new masthead, Tung has carried the magazine forward while referencing the original serif logo used by our founder Georges Haroutin in 1986,” Kristina Urquhart, editor of Applied Arts, said. “We’re thrilled with what Tung’s created in the new issue. They’ve established a rigorous approach for our regular departments, with a lot of creative flexibility in the features section. Applied Arts now echoes the strong editorial design that made this magazine so vital and exiting 30 years ago.”

The issue includes:
  • A series of essays from industry insiders on 30 ways the creative industry has changed over the last 30 years
  • Work that’s made lasting impact, sourced from the magazine’s archives
  • A series entitled Evolution, which explores the history of an important technological advancement from the past three decades.
The celebratory March/April issue is the first in a series of collector’s editions, and is on newsstands now.
