TV Guide: What’s Worth Watching

For those of us who keep tabs on magazine redesigns, What’s been Worth Watching the past few weeks is TV Guide itself.

For those of us who keep tabs on magazine redesigns, What’s been Worth Watching the past few weeks is TV Guide itself.

The magazine unveiled a fresh redesign last week with a new palette of typefaces, including several from Font Bureau — Quiosco for text, Boomer Sans & Serif for a wide range of display.

[Update: The Boomer fonts have been released for Retail license as Salvo Sans & Salvo Serif]

The new design by Robert Newman, James Reyman, Kate Thompson and Katherine Dillon of DillonThompson features a brighter, bolder, cleaner look and a crisp implementation of the magazine’s underlying 12-column grid structure.

Editorially, the new TV Guide also inaugurates a smart rethinking of its content organization — shuffling features, highlights, and schedules all together, arranged by color-coded days of the week — for a more user-friendly presentation.
