Azure Trends Issue

Posted by Scott On September - 8 - 2010

Check out the new Azure cover, for their October 2010 issue. Talk about cutting edge.

Set to hit newsstands on September 20th in Canada and October 4th in the United States, Azure recently re-designed their cover template. The new trim size is a still luxurious oversized format of 9 X 11 ½.

The new tag line is: Design, Architecture, Interiors, Curiosity

The new format lends weight to the notion of “radical clarity” when it comes to the main selling feature, which in this case is Azure’s popular Trends Issue.

The navigation bar technique helps the reader find other stories of interest.

The cover price is $7.95
