frieze Magazine: Redesign


This month’s frieze magazine sees a new-look, with a fresh typographic approach
combined with new sections and features. The redesign was overseen by Art Director
Sonya Dyakova, who explains that she aimed to produce ‘expressive, visually
arresting publication’.
DIGITAL : To accompany the new look, frieze will now be available on the iPad. The
May issue of the magazine will be published as a sampler version from 3 May; a fullcontent
edition will be available to purchase from the June–August issue onwards.
VIDEO: The digital formats of frieze include two specially commissioned films,
which are also be available online at The first pair of these include:
an exploration of the art and architecture of London’s Olympic Park, including
exclusive footage of the park itself; and a visual essay on the work of Moyra Davey,
by Quinn Latimer.
The May issue introduces ‘Influences’, in which artists talk about the key images
that have inspired their work; new approaches to the work of ‘Focus’ artists, including
case studies and studio visits; plus the re-introduction of the ‘Picture Piece’.
