Croatian Medical Journal

Magazine cover design 2011 – 2014 - croatian medical journal 10

Croatian Medical Journal is a magazine published by Medical faculties in Split, Zagreb, Osijek and Rijeka. It is in English and it is published bi-monthly. The project included design of the magazine’s new visual identity, design and layout of the magazine, cover design for each issue, and design of the magazine’s website, which has later received VIDI Web Award for the best Croatian website of the year 2011 in its category.

Cover design for CMJ 2009 issues was specific for its use of nothing but vector graphics. On the cover of the third issue, the only graphic was a hair on the back. In the series of covers for 2010 issues, the magazine was being treated as a subject to which the topic was related. It was a subject, a patient, a sample… The logo was subjected to various treatments – depending on the topic – for example, it was melted in acid or covered with a blanket.

These are the covers of CMJ from 2011 – 2014. Over these four years, the magazine proceeded to be a subject and a patient. Also sometimes it was a medicine, a symptom or a doctor. - croatian medical journal - croatian medical journal - croatian medical journal 11
