6th blog post : Table of contents


Above is a picture of a table of contents of a Nintendo Power magazine from September of 1993. What I found interesting was that good, strong design hasn’t changed much over the past 20 years, as a good columnar grid design can still withstand the toll of time. There is a very clear and clean hierarchy to the table of contents, and even when dealing with many different subjects, 8 in total, each group is still well organized and distinct from other pieces of information. The design shows a great use of pictures to accompany the text, with each picture very clearly belonging to each group under the hierarchy. Nothing in the design seems out of place and everything seems well thought out according to the grid system in place.
