The judging for the 30th SPD publication design awards was held in late January, 1995, at Parson’s School of Design in New York City. The competition chairs were Diana LaGuardia, design director of Conde Nast Traveler and Audrey Razgaitis, art director of Conde Nast Traveler. The two chairs gathered a stellar group of 36 judges, including magazine art directors and photo directors, plus some prestigious studio designers and even an editor. These photographs of all the judges by Steven Freeman were published in the SPD Gala 30 program, on May 5, 1995.

My newest favorite magazine is Root + Bone, just delivered today via Stack as part of their October delivery. Distributed free around London and parts of the UK, Root + Bone is an unconventional food magazine, self-described as “The Offcuts of Food Culture.” Its elegant design belies the magazine’s punk aesthetic approach. The feature “Cooking with Semen” (complete with recipes) says it all.
