Time Magazine’s List Issue

December 18, 2008

Time’s latest issue looks like it’s designed to be zoomed on:

Time Cover

The whole “lists” section of the print version is laid out like the cover, with some of the text huge and some of it so small you have to squint to read it. Interestingly their online version of that same content eschews that design entirely; evidently they didn’t realize they could have used Deep Zoom. Would be an interesting demo, though; not only could you zoom in on the existing print design, but you could have even more information on all the news stories, buried in tiny print near each item. Either way, it’s fun to see this aesthetic going mainstream.
