Ensign/Liahona Magazine Concepts
With as heavy a presence the LDS Church has in Salt Lake City, you'd think we would have even more work coming from them! At modern we were commissioned to conceptualize their family-centric magazines, Ensign and Liahona, and modernize them for their (slightly) increasingly progressive audience.
The most fun and challenging experience in designing these was the fact that, being a global publication, we had to anticipate translating the magazines into dozens of languages. To cut down on costs, only the black plate could differ from language to language when printing. Our typography had to remain black or, in select instances, be reversed from grayscale images.
