Restyling Jot Down Magazine

  • 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.
