The science of magazine design

I found this through The Simpleton and Stack magazine (but the text below came from the Eye magazine blog).

Stack America’s infographic explores the fundamentals of art direction

Few people outside the hothouse world of magazine production realise what a difficult and intellectually demanding job editorial art direction can be, so we are deeply grateful to Eye contributor Andrew Losowsky (of Stack America) for this carefully researched chart by Richard Turley and his team (Rob and Kenton) at Bloomberg Business Week.

It’s an essential guide for freelances, salaried drudges and students alike, with practical advice on ‘Visual Problem Solving’ and a handy Glossary.

Not to mention detailed analysis of some key differences between editors and designers.
