Oxford Government Review publication design
Design and layout for new publication launched by University of Oxford school
Launched in 2016 by Blavatnik School of Government, the University of Oxford's school of governance and international public policy, Oxford Government Review is a regular publication that each issue focuses on a specific subject.
The first issue, covering the trust – or lack of trust – to be found in governments around the world, is accompanied by a 'Conference Addendum' containing overviews from the school's Challenges of Government Conference that took place before the publication's launch. I was asked to create a new brand and visual style for the Oxford Government Review, to fit within the Blavatnik School of Government's wider brand but to work successfully in its own right as a stylish, 'pick-upable' magazine. The appearance is sober and professional, but modern and interesting. I defined and implementing a grid structure for the publication and used imagery in a bold fashion, balanced with strong negative space and careful typography.
