French cultural magazine TÃ©lÃ©rama is to get a face-lift this summer, courtesy of London’s CDT Design. The weekly was last redesigned in 1992 in a project steered by CDT director Neil Walker, who is on board again for the image change. Walker’s remit will include the opportunity to design a new features section for the magazine; previous editorial content has been based on cultural reviews and TV listings. ‘It is unusual to be given a second, separate opportunity to work with a publication of this calibre,’ says Walker.
Inflate incorporates its trademark design style at every turn in a new public gallery and retail outlet selling its own products alongside work from other contemporary designers. ‘We have inflatable shelving systems and other inflatable furniture to reinforce the Inflate brand,’ says an Inflate spokeswoman of the site in London’s Old Street. If the venture is successful, the group will look to open a more widespread chain of standalone Inflate retail outlets, adds the spokeswoman.
