Best Magazine Design Finalists


The impending fear of the end for print magazines seems to have only inspired publishers to prove everyone wrong by refining and, at times, redesigning their pages. This year's finalists for best magazine design, announced by the Society of Publication Designers—or SPD— are some of the best we've seen.


While some of the usual suspects were rightfully chosen—like Wired, W, GQ and Dwell—the SPD's list of finalists for their prestigious awards included some publications that might not immediately spring to mind for their design chops, like educational glossy onEarth and money magazine Fortune.
