The Economist has appointed Tomato to design its new quarterly lifestyle magazine Intelligent Life.
Tomato co-founder John Warwicker will lead the project, in collaboration with Intelligent Life art director Sue Vago.
The large-format magazine will use a re-cut 18th Century Dutch typeface called Fleisschmann, which is intended to reflect the magazine’s editorial philosophy, ‘knowledge is pleasure’. It will cover a range of subjects including food, travel, health, shopping, philanthropy, design and the arts.
The Economist confirms that Tomato will be working on Intelligent Life for at least the first two issues. The magazine will launch in September.
