Redesign of Lebanon’s only fortnightly cultural listings magazine.
Agenda Culturel has been a staple of Lebanon’s cultural landscape since 1994—with its design largely untouched since.
In collaboration with a new Editor, the goal was to completely refresh the magazine’s look and feel to attract the next generation of readers. Preserving its beloved square format and referencing a modernist ‘call to action’ design direction, a bold, striking new look was created. By pairing an energetic colour palette and typefaces from Grilli Type foundry with a rigorous new grid, the design packs information while retaining breathing space. The new system is easy to navigate and creates more room for editorial soundbites celebrating cultural life in the country.
