This past summer, the New York Times Magazine got a beautiful redesign by Design Director Arem Duplessis and his staff.

It’s a great read to understand the strategy and limitations in the redesign, as well as to understand the before and after transformations of each of the sections. After focusing on more digital design lately, it’s nice to read a carefully crafted and explained article about Arem’s approach to upgrading an already fantastic piece of print.
