Inflatable Ferret is an online student-run underground music magazine. As we are beginning our second full year of production, we decided to refresh and update the magazine's format and design.
In the new design, we wanted the magazine to be playful, yet professional and sophisticated. To do this, I used bright, exuberant colors in contrast with clean, polished sans serif typefaces like Trade Gothic and Grotesque.
To give us more creative layout options and more flexible whitespace, I am using a 7-column grid system.
The following are pages from our October 2010 issue, the first issue to use this new template.
