Redesigns for the new issues of Vancouver & Reader’s Digest

Two National Magazine Award-winning titles with a combined 114 years of publishing have unveiled redesigns this month.

Vancouver Magazine, owned by TC Media, debuted a new style for its Jan/Feb 2014 issue.

Most notably, the rounded font with the drop shadow, prominent in the old design (including this cover nominated for a National Magazine Award last year) has been replaced with a sleeker serif design. As for what’s new on the inside, read up on the details of the new VanMag at the Canadian Magazines blog.

And Canada’s Reader’s Digest also has a new look for February 2014.

The new print redesign follows up on the digital redesigns for RD and its French counterpart, Sélection, from last fall. And not just the cover has changed (though note the new miniscule ‘d’ in “digest,” quite a departure from the old design in which that word was the more prominent part of the title). Editor Robert Goyette told Canadian Magazines,

We asked what you liked best about Reader’s Digest and we’re happy to unveil a makeover to enhance your reading experience. From a new logo that emphasizes the “Reader” to an expanded selection of stories, this redesign is tailored to the people who told us they love our content and want more of it.
