Audio Annual is a high-quality print magazine, serving as an independent, unbiased guide to large, and small brands in the audiophile space. Audio Annual will be published once a year, with a focus on new product releases and innovation. The audiophile space, due to its very nature, is fragmented. Our aim is to create a catalogue of equipment, from a wide variety of manufacturers, in one place.
Audio Annual 2014 will have distribution in the US, Europe, and 60 other international markets.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
I want the cover to appeal to the more classy individual. I know that sounds a little cliche, but this magazine should sit well next to the finest modern art (MOMA) and furniture (Dwell) brochures, as it does next to other premium catalogues (Robb Report).
I'm a firm believer in the "Less is More" mantra.
The cover has to have:
- Title: Audio Annual (please do not cover/hide with image)
- Year: 2014
- Tagline: The Definitive Audiophile Reference
- Issue number: Issue 1
- Price: $20
- URL: http://www.audioannual.com
The attached cover design is our first attempt. We're completely open to new ideas - fonts, layouts, colors. The attached photograph is what we'd like to use as the cover image. The magazine should pop on a magazine rack.
As an additional incentive, the selected cover designer will get a credit on the editor's page of the magazine (5th page in).
