Jot Down is a quarterly Spanish magazine based on Contemporary culture.
For their 4th anniversary we proposed a restyling of the layout trying to outline the vintage essence of the 1920 and 1930 decades empowering the publication identity.
For this reason we realized a deep investigation of old European newspapers and magazine that should inspire us to recover old elements to use them in a contemporary way.

An example of how we developed the new layout samples thanks to a deep research on old publications.
Elements like black stroke around the photos helps to improve the vintage effect.
